This week’s "Public Affairs" show features Part 2 of Jeff Berkowitz’s interview with Paul Vallas, a possible candidate to run for Chicago Mayor in the February, 2023 election contest.

Mr. Vallas said in Part 1 of the interview, “We’ll make our decision [about a Chicago Mayoral run] before Memorial Day but we are close to giving it the greenlight.”

Part 2 of the interview includes detailed discussions of Vallas’ fixes of CPS’ failing performance amid excessive and growing spending per kid per year; Vallas’ strong support of school choice, his holding the line on pressures by others to raise property taxes and how Paul Vallas would deal with the City’s continuing fiscal decline, including Chicago’s huge and growing pension shortfall.
