Interview with Nathaniel George Booker
Nathaniel George Booker, a newly elected first term member of the Maywood Village Board, represents the next generation of public servants. He tells us how the energy of his new generation can effect substantive change right now by streamlining old inefficient methods of governance, recruiting engaged, action oriented community representatives, and concentrating on the basics of governing such as realistic budgets, focused oversight, and open communication with the tax paying public.
Public Perspective, with host Kevin McDermott, serves up lively conversation each week with
intriguing guests from a wide range of backgrounds. The half-hour show covers politics,
the economy, business, and social issues with well known public voices and with unsung heroes.
Our guests have included such notables as: the President of the Cook County Board, the Editorial
Page Editor of the Chicago Tribune, the Mayor of Amman, Jordan, and a Nobel Prize nominee as well
as social activists, elected officials, and everyday citizens who have something to say, but whom
you won't see in the mainstream media.
Kevin and his staff draw on a wealth of varied experience in business and industry, entertainment,
religion, the arts, and civic organizations to ask the right questions and focus in on the most
interesting answers. The Public Perspective team brings you shows full of vibrant, entertaining
conversation that will make you think.
