I am an avid reader and a fan of politics, and as I watch the news unfold, it is difficult to keep up with the latest events.
For me, the news has become increasingly politicized and polarized over the past few weeks.
I am always willing to get my hands dirty, but sometimes, when the news is more dire and the stakes are higher, I have to find my balance.
When I am not researching or writing about a hot topic, I tend to avoid political debates.
When I do get in the middle of a political fight, I do not like to waste time and energy arguing with my political opponents.
I try to focus on the issues and get things done.
That is why I am so pleased that the Chicago Council on Public Works and Highways has chosen to hold a forum on “Hot Issue” on Wednesday.
I hope that we will see the city working together to move forward, regardless of how we react to the latest political flare-ups.
The fact that this forum will be held in Chicago should serve as a reminder to the public that the city is more than just a place to go to relax and unwind.
If there is one thing that I learned from my years as a journalist in Chicago, it’s that there is no such thing as “too much politics.”
There is just too much to cover, too much at stake, too many things to talk about.
The issues that come up are too important to leave out.
It is time to get serious about the problems facing the people of our city, and we need to get out and get our work done.
I have been a Chicagoan for 32 years and this is the first time that I will be in the city again.
I will definitely be back.
