"But tough choices come only know like black holes and the only three ways a Chicago alderman leaves the City Council the ballot box. Jury box or the pine box. Now Bill Cameron Lawrence Patrol is here. He's the president of the Civic Federation and AKI, analyst of the gigantic financial Problems facing City Hall in Springfield. Lawrence. Welcome back to the program. Thanks for having me is the coronavirus leaving you on your family alone. Luckily, my family's healthy and so am I. So that's a lot to be thankful for. It certainly disrupting so many people's lives and health so very glad to be able to be conducting a lot of our work virtually And disrupting so many government budgets exactly coming up. This week, the Chicago City Council will vote on Mayor Lightfoot's pandemic budgets for 2021. Lawrence. It's got a $94 million property tax. I can it. What do you think of this? Been spending plan? Well, they were. I mean, you have to put it in the context of what the mayor faces and what the city of Chicago faces right because of the economic uncertainty and disruption that is Um the pandemic has caused. There are very little options that are easy for the city to implement. The property tax increase was not something that, um, the Civic Federation initially was, you know, thrilled about but it is a relatively modest increase. Um, that is the city had indicated was necessary in order to prop up their ongoing Financial position and to show that they could that there was new revenue coming in concerned now that the property texts increases being targeted toward a capital plan that has been not been fully vetted or articulated. The city doesn't need capital improvements, but it needs a comprehensive plan in this very Tough economic time before it spends any money or prioritized prioritizes capital spending. The mayor had has a reasonable approach to this budget. She's trying to maintain the city's both its financial position. She's not getting any help from Springfield, which is not even operational in terms of the General Assembly hasn't met since May. Hope is that the federal government will be providing some revenue support in the form to not just the city in the state of Illinois. But all states once the a Biden administration comes into office, or the U. S. Senate decides to go forward with some local government assistance. Now, if Washington does come through, Is there any piece of the pandemic budget from the mayor that can be reduced cutback? Maybe from definitely the mayor's people are saying that if they get significant revenue support from Washington, they will not be borrowing us much money. They will be not trying to use his what's locally called scoop and toss, which is where we're restructuring our debt by pushing it out. In order to provide budgetary relief to the to this year's and last year's budget and the clothes last year's deficit, So the Civic Federation is strongly supported the need to provide temporary relief to states and local governments during the pandemic so that they can continue to operate so that they can support the businesses and residents that need this support so we can get through the economic disruption, but it's unlikely that that level Support from any administration is going to be enough to avoid the real crisis in terms of Chicago's finances, which are it's overwhelming pension liability and tied to its high level of debt. Do you see a pension solution that nobody's talking about? I see a lot. I don't hear that much talking about solutions, especially not in Springfield mentioned that the General Assembly hasn't even been in session since May. So there's not really any talk in the body that needs to make, um, pension reform and relief. A possibility. Yes, they're consolidation of the city pension funds has been talked about Governor Pritzker last year before the pandemic had a commission headed by Bill Brodsky that looked at the obvious answer. Which is Illinois has more pension funds than any other state. Better run states have consolidated pension funds we could do that with are not just our police and fire, which would be the first step. But there's no justification for the Chicago public schools from a taxpayer standpoint to have its own pension fund, for which the city taxpayers are on the hook, both for the Chicago public School pension fund, as well as the down state and a suburban teacher's pension fund. They needed to be combined to stay. It needs to come up with a means of reducing the growth of the pension liability. The most obvious answer is to go after the 3% compounded automatic increase that requires, um, addressing the constitutional issue. It requires a willingness by the General Assembly and the governor to take on this issue. It's the one that's driving all the tax increases at the local level, the state level the basic reason. While there was a proposal to amend the Constitution to allow for a graduated income tax was because the state can't both funded pension liabilities and fund it's regular government operations. Now organized labor will never go for that. But is there a tipping point in which labor should endorse that, for its own sake? I think labor has Theo is a key component and moving forward and protecting both retirees and the workers. And it's just a It's an obvious fairness issue should Their current workers, not beginning salary increases or beginning reduced salary increases. While the retirees in many places in Illinois and Chicago governments are getting 3% and then sometimes compounded, 3% increases it just with inflation, being at of historic and look a historic low that is projected to continue. We cannot afford to maintain the most generous automatic Pension benefit increase of any state in the United States. No other state built it into statute that regardless of inflation, we're going to give 3% in May cases compounded increases its I distinguish between the Chicago police and fire which don't get the automatic 3% compounded increase that policeman fireman outside of Chicago received His bed is the property tax levy going up is isn't such a good idea to let the mayor raise it by the cost of living or 5%, whichever is less every year until the year 2058. Lauren's right. It is basically not a good idea to put all your pinch your property tax increases on automatic pilot and we express that to the City Council and express that to the mayor, if you can justify in the midst of a pandemic that you have a need to increase the price. Pretty taxes by this year's rate of inflation, it doesn't justify increasing it automatically next year. The reason why Chicago has has a self imposed property tax camp is because it was a reaction to what was going on in Springfield, which was the spread of property tax caps by the then Republican dominated legislature and governor's office under governor Edgar In 1995, there was a push to spread property tax caps out of the collar. Needs to include Cook County. It basically is a limitation that says you could hope non home rule units of government can't increase the property text levy by more than 5%, or C P. I, whichever is less. Since CPR Consumer price index has been less than three and bordering on 2% or less for many years, it makes sense to limit that growth or else it just continues to build upon itself again. Property tax relief Have to come from Springfield in some authorization of consolidating the number of governments reducing government mandates or somehow helping the locals reduce their costs. Okay, let's talk about cuts the mayor is borrowing against future cannabis revenue to wipe out 350 layoffs is just such a good idea. This is not a good idea. Borrowing for operating is never a good idea that cuts that they had identified, which were in addition to vacancy. Cuts. We're going to be contingent on whether or not they received federal revenue support. If they got federal revenue than his support, they would not necessarily borrow as much and they might not make those personnel reductions. If there's a justification for, um maintaining specific positions that has not really been articulated, we need we borrowing. Against the hope for or the expectation of a non runner, reliable and relatively new revenue source. Cannabis is going to be very expensive, and it's going to limit the city's ability to balance their budget next year and in years to come..

"That I recommend is, of course, the connected to Chicago podcast hosted by The dean of City Hall. Reporters doubled his own bill Cameron, who joins me now to talk about the life and legacy of big Jim Thompson, when you had heard first that he passed. What was the first memory of Thompson that came to your mind, Bill Cameron. Well, I would say the monthly shows we used to do on my Sunday shows when he was governor. We had time to really get into issues and talk about the way deals were made and politics was played, and he'd come in once a month just to do that on what was then W and make you You know, I was reading all the obituaries and especially the columnist Mark Brown had a fine when he's going to be your next hour. Neil Steinberg in the Sun Times as well. I was not aware how far back he went, You know, I knew him as a governor, I knew had been a U. S attorney. But first, he built quite a roster in that U. S attorney's office. A lot of superstars. Became superstars later worked under Jim Towns. Can you speak to that event? Yeah, He put a lot of daily Democrats in prison with the help of all those guys that are mentioned, including guys like Sam Skinner, who later became U. S attorney. But he made a career out of going after daily Democrats, but he never got to daily himself. He got to the number two guy Tom Kane, chairman of finance, who thought that they'd never get a never dirty a pole keen but finally sent him to prison. And that set the stage for his popularity, and the Republican Party decided to slay him for governor, and he want to easily over my college and otherwise very popular secretary of state in the 1976 elections. When Thompson first went to work for the U. S attorney wasn't it's kind of a back room deal that this U s attorney was going to retire. Move on in a year, and I was going to be Thompson's office after that need work with Mitchell out of the Nixon administration. Yes, sir. Wass. It was all planned because the other guy was going to go up to the appellate court, and it worked out beautifully for the Republicans. Didn't Thompson did he prosecute any other Republicans other than Spiro Agnew? There were a couple of on the county board some county officials, but they were token Republicans. It was really going after Dirty Democrats down at City Hall. And who did he unseat was a Dan Walker for governor. Walker was knocked off by Howlett in that primary. Okay, 76 because daily put up a little knockoff Walker, who wouldn't give daily the crosstown Expressway? Remember that one? Yes, I do. I vega over that. So he he got close to Richard J. Daley close, Teo took keen and put keen away, but never could was going after Richard J. Daley. Well, of course, but Richard J. Daley, like Mike Madigan, uh, always had a buffer between him and the dirty deal, and so they could never put their hands on. Richard J. Daley and for the summaries, and I would be surprised if they couldn't get Mike Madigan. But who knows? Yeah, I'm going to take the hunter on that. I don't see that happening either. I think it was gonna happen. It would've already happened unless this kind of sidebar unless what's that former lobbyist named McClane, Mike McLean, You know, but I think Madigan's too smart even to talk to McLane on, you know, unsecure telephone line and implicate himself. He just doesn't seem like that kind of guy. Back Tio Governor James Thompson talking about his life and legacy here with her own Bill Cameron.

He didn't get married until he was running for office. Did he? And he was essentially just a hardworking bachelor. That was the the story of Jim Thompson. That's right. I think you know about Jim Thompson knows was. He was a moderate Republican who is interesting and making a deal by crossing The isle and fighting out with those Democrats needed to do things like keep the White Sox in the Southside or fix up Navy Pier and make it to the biggest tourist attraction in Illinois. In other words, he was not interested in fighting. As is so often the case today, but he was interested in finding consensus and doing what was good for Illinois. So we knew he wouldn't have to Richard J. Daley, but he had to cut a deal Richard M. Daley to get the white socks to stay in town. How did that come about? Well, they had to stop the clock in the Illinois house because there was a midnight deadline on DH hey, was on the floor, literally twisting arms, really putting the pressure on the last few votes. On DH. He needed a little more time and so somebody stopped the clock. And it was really more like 12 or three AM then just before midnight that they got the deal done. That's that's faster. That's just great. That's that's great. Stop the clock. Not not metaphorically, literally. Stop the clock. So Chicago So Illinois and the mayor at the time was not rich Daley was Harold Washington with the White Sox deal. Yes. When I was going through the Legislature, Okay. All right. Okay, but daily was mayor by the time Well, I thought it was. I thought it was. I thought it was Thompson daily and Ryan's door for the three guys wrong. Well, I think daily undoubtedly probably had some effect, but the deal was to do was done..
