Interview with Nathaniel George Booker
Maywood Village Trustee Nathaniel George Booker explains why the 2020 U.S. Census matters so much to everyday citizens. He points out that many local programs and much Federal assistance is based on Census data, and how municipalities can miss out on tens of millions of dollars in road building, social services, and other types of funding if the Census undercounts local populations.
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.
