Charles Thomas, political reporter for Channel 7, will moderate a debate tonight between Democratic candidates for Cook County Board president, including incumbent Todd Stroger and Dorothy Brown, Terrence O’Brien and Toni Preckwinkle.
Starting at 7 p.m., it will air live on HD Channel 7.2 (Comcast Channel 217, Wide Open West 219 and RCN 618) and stream live on abc7chicago.com. Channel 7 will rebroadcast it at 10:30 a.m. Sunday.
If you're interested in taxes, the county's legal and hospital systems, patronage, the forest preserves, county roads and a host of other issues, the debate could be worth your time. Or you could wait for one of the newscasts to spend less than 5 minutes on this and go on at length about some useless fluff.
