We gave eight members of the Chicago City Council's Progressive Caucus copies of "Chicago Is Not Broke" at a budget town meeting at Malcolm X College on November 3, 2016. Here is Tom's testimony (3 minutes): https://soundcloud.com/civiclab/tom-tresser-testimony.

Democracy In Action Chicago presents:

"Is Chicago Broke?"

The Mayor claims we cannot afford many services without drastic tax increases. But are there other ways to raise revenues that are progressive and not regressive? Come hear Tom Tresser, Dick Simpson, Jackson Potter and Amara Enyia talk about their essays in the book, "Chicago Is Not Broke: Funding the City We Deserve."They will speak about how Chicago got where we are now and viable alternatives to create the city we deserve.

Presentations will be followed by a Q & A session; book signing (price $12); leadership session on how to research relevant topics; and a crowd source research time for interested people. Bring your lap top if you want to do research!
