Today: We continue our conversations with northwest Indiana residents interested in the U.S. Representative seat now held by Pete Visclosky. Hammond Mayor Tom McDermott Jr. is one of the candidates who will appear on the May 2020 primary election ballot.  He talks about his experience, including that of mayor, and his views on the issues.  We have another edition of "Green Fleet Radio," supported by South Shore Clean Cities and NIRPC. And Lake County Councilman Charlie Brown is with us to talk about efforts to make the county government department budgeting process more efficient.  A committee chaired by Brown will be meeting next year to begin work on the issue, ahead of the 2021 budget year.
