Mike Stephen checks in with DNAinfo Chicago City Hall reporter Heather Cherone about the CTA’s upcoming new buses and improved service and why Chicago aldermen were upset about not getting World Series tickets, talks with BallotReady co-founder Alex Niemczewski about educating ourselves about political candidates and how she’s helping to make voting easier, and chats with Active Transportation Alliance advocacy director Jim Merrell about proposing a riverfront bike trail for Chicago… with some of it possibly floating! Meanwhile, we realize that the city is still standing after the Cubs won the World Series, and we warn our listeners that businesses rewarding voters on election day is an illegal act. This week’s local music is provided by Pool Holograph.
