Our Representatives: Jan Schakowsky
In the latest installment of our series “Our Representatives” — conversations with the congressmen and congresswomen who represent the WBEZ-listening area in Washington — Morning Shift talks to Democratic Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky. She represents Illinois’ 9th district, including parts of Evanston, Des Plaines, and Glenview. Schakowsky has been in office since 1999 and is known as one of the most liberal members of Congress. She followed in the footsteps of one of the country’s longest-serving congressmen — Sidney Yates — who was, among other things, a champion of the arts.
