Afternoon Shift

What's the deal with your government?

Did you know displaying your old city sticker could get you a ticket? (AP)

Tuesday on the Afternoon Shift, we are trying a new segment. The Better Government Association is coming in our studio to take your calls about, well, better government. But instead of just telling stories of graft and corruption, we wanted to provide a service for you and your government questions. We want you to call in and get advice. It can be anything. It can be:

  • How can I get a city contract?
  • Why does my parking sticker cost so much?
  • How do I get the pothole in front of my house fixed?
  • Why is that city worker sleeping in his van?

The BGA has answers. They'll give you the tools to take action and arm you with the information you need to help navigate local government. We should call the segment "Call in and stump the BGA!"

But seriously, call 312-923-9239. You can also comment here and of course, on Twitter with our hashtag, #AfternoonShift. The segment starts at 2 p.m. 

We look forward to what could be a lively, entertaining, informative and active conversation.
