Tonight’s City of Chicago and tomorrow night's Chicago metro N and NW suburban edition of Public Affairs features State Rep. Candidate Amanda Biela (R-Edgebrook), who is challenging 14 year Democrat incumbent, John D’Amico, in the 15th State House District.
The show airs tonight throughout the City of Chicago at 8:30 pm and midnight on Cable Ch. 21 [CAN TV]
The show also airs tonight and Wednesday night in Highland Park and Deerfield at 8:30 pm on Cable Ch. 19
The show airs tomorrow night in 24 north and northwest suburbs at 8:30 pm on Cable Ch.19. See, below, for the airing schedule, by suburb and channel.
Tonight's show features State Rep. candidate Biela discussing with show host Jeff Berkowitz her proposed property and state income tax cuts for middle class voters by about $8000 (with more for higher income voters and a hefty amount, as well, for lower income voters). The property tax cut reflects the benefits of "Hard 1% Market Value Property Tax caps,"which Biela favors.
These state and local tax cuts would start, says Biela, to reverse the outflow of population, businesses and jobs from Illinois by making people feel much better about Illinois' economic outlook and thus keep Illinois' current and next generation in Illinois.
State Rep. candidate Biela also highlights the extreme contempt many of the 15th State House District voters have for Speaker Mike Madigan's and State Rep. John D'Amico's political "Machine," arguing it is time for the citizens to rid themselves of that anachronistic barrier to the state's economic progress.
The IL GOP needs to pick up nine seats in the Illinois House to get a majority and boot Speaker Madigan out of his more than 3 decade position of Il House Speaker.
The 15th State House District is viewed by most as a Tier 2 shot for the State GOP. Candidate Biela is a tough yet thoughtful candidate, but she is up against, as Biela puts it, a half century family machine that has had a lock on Chicago's 39th Ward seat and the 15th District seat.
Even indictments have not broken the Madigan-D'Amico machine's stranglehold on the 15th State House District. What else is new. It is the Chicago way!
Finally, Amanda Biela outlines significant positive reforms to deal with the problems caused by the implosion of State and Local government employee pension costs, including the State's unfunded 130 billion dollars in pension liabilities.
