Evanston has a new mayor and city council! A few months in, Mayor Hagerty & Alderman Wilson will join us for a lively discussion of current Evanston topics and questions, including yours! 

Please submit your questions in the comments section below, and we will choose a few to read aloud.

Back in the 19th century, "more than the beer, saloons provided a gathering place in a nation with little public space for working-class men to argue the issues or meet the candidates."* 

"What we need, more than tweets or memes, is the kind of civic life that transpires when men and women gather face to face and, as a fan of old saloons put it, 'political matters ebb and flow free as froth on the beer.'"*
