This week on Spin, Tribune City Hall reporter and budget expert Hal Dardick joins the show. Hal updates us on the taxing times it is for Chicago residents, including new property assessments, higher property taxes and now a proposed water and sewer fee increase. After that, another Tribune colleague of mine joins the show, Kim Geiger. Kim covers the Thompson Center and state government and we’ll discuss  the continuing campaign between Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner and the Democratic supermajority-led House and Senate. And then, my former Tribune colleague and Bloomberg political reporter John McCormick chimes into the conversation. We’ll talk about the dynamics of the presidential race and contests for the U.S. House and Senate.
