A national spotlight is shining on Chicago for all the wrong reasons. The city has become known for its violence, police abuse, parent and teacher unrest, population decline, and mounting municipal and pension debt.

The underlying problem, contend Ed Bachrach and Austin Berg, is that deliberative democracy is dead in the city. Chicago is home to the last strongman political system in urban America. The mayor holds all the power, and any perceived checks on mayoral control are often proven illusive.

Ed Bachrach is the retired CEO of Bachrach Clothing and the founder and president of the Center for Pension Integrity in Chicago. His op-eds have been published in the Wall Street Journal, Chicago Tribune, and Chicago Sun Times.

Austin Berg, an award-winning writer, is the director of content strategy at the Illinois Policy Institute. He contributes opinion columns to the Illinois News Network and wrote the documentary film Madigan: Power. Privilege. Politics.

The event begins with registration and reception at 11:30 a.m. with luncheon and programming at noon. If you or your guest have a food allergy or dietary restriction, please contact Club Services at 800.443.0578.

The Union League Club adheres to a no denim or athletic wear dress code for this event. Please share this with your guests.
