12:24 pm
assessor forest claypool. running against joe barrios as well as republican candidate for cook county assessor sharon stroaback ekersel and green party's. one of the things i noticed in this week's debate it came out that you did not vote in february's election. i think you want people to come out to vote for you now. that surprised me. why? >> one of those crazy days like we all have. i was putting out flyers late in the day and time got away from me. in 30 years out of 60 elections, i think two. i guarantee you i won't miss this one. >> long time democrat and now running as independent. >> i saw hot party nominated in the form of joe barrios i realized that -- i realized i had an opportunity to do something about that. i was alarmed by that because joe barrios was called pay to play personified. classic insider who represents type of politics that has raised our taxes and polluted
12:25 pm
our ethics of our government. and i think it's important that voters have an opportunity to send a message against that kind of politics that he represents. >> you don't have that democratic machine behind you. has it made it tougher to raise funs and one of the things is you won't take money from lawyers who are making their living filing those property tax appeal. >> joe barrios takes millions of dollars in campaign cash from property tax appeal lawyers and gives out hundreds of millions of dollars in tax breaks to their clients. tax break the "sun-times" has called hard to explain. that's significant is other taxpayers without clout pay the difference. we pay higher property taxes to make up the difference for those clout cuts. i will remove the conflict of interest in the assessor's office because i don't take special interest money. >> he counters that by saying you taken imain contributions from well healed million million dollar property owners. >> almost -- >> and who have been turned down on appeals. >> the last part is not accurate but the first part, almost any donor in the state of illinois is a property
12:26 pm
owner. you can't equate that to people's livelihood of joe barriers good will. they put a contingency in their pocket that's a blatant conflict of interest. shouldn't even be legal let alone involved in this campaign. >> in this office i have to ask the question that everyone at home is asking. my home value going down. my taxes are not going down fast enough. what are you going to do about it? >> i believe the assessor has power and authority to lower the value of properties to reflect the marketplace as opposed to waiting for the tri- annual assessment that takes place every three years. cook county property tack bills are being mailed out late this year a lot of people are skeptical because obviously taxes are going to be going up and will get that bill and get sticker shock and see it and will be angry and yet the elections will have been held. >> exactly and john castro commented about that and he pointed out as assessor has
12:27 pm
that mike madigan, speaker of the house is number one property tax appeal lawyer in the state in front of mr. barrios and mr. barrios don't want the property tax bills to come out before the election because voters are angry and if they see these taxes which will include this massive tax shift that mr. barrios has engineers by giving cuts to friends and contributors, obviously people are more angry. that's precisely why i ran. my race is for people to send a clear message against this type of insider politics. >> what message can you send to people about ways to cut expenses? >> i think we can do more. but i think the real issue is property taxes. they are too high. we are paying a heavy price for the corruption and insider politics. that's why we have the highest combined sales of property taxes. i oppose the tax increase on county board. i led the fight against that. joe barrios supported the sales tax increase. he was for the original one which was twice as high. taxes and corruption is big
12:28 pm
issue and clear opportunity for people to send a message against that. >> forest claypool, folks are watching this election very closely. we wish you the best. thank you so much. >> thank you. our interviews with the candidates continue. at 12:40 today we will talk to tom tresser, the green party candidate. and then monday republican candidate for governor bill brady joins us. stay with us. tom skilling has details about a wet weekend coming up next.

12:32 pm
last night the big story was the frost to which many folks awaken this morning including here in the city for the first time. this season. 25 this morning at sugar grove. rochelle was 26. it was 28 in kankakee. and 30 in lansing. didn't matter if you were south or west, even in the city it was pretty frosty. so the 56 we have going now at o'hare represents a nice recovery. the winds are starting to blow from the southwest at all of the weather stations. 57 at midway airport. and they will be strengthening and one of the features of this weekend is a strong weekend long south to southwest wind that will blow with gusty. glenview at 58 degrees at this hour and lake geneva at 58 as well. here are sunnies skies. patches of mid-level clouds across mississippi and western illinois and denser clouds and imbedded thunderstorms particularly down here in oklahoma as you can see riding northward. this is that weather system and
12:33 pm
what's going to happen as the jet stream that's been avoiding it is going to start dipping to the west, pick this thing up and pull in our direction. this translates to a wetter weekend but not a total washout. here you can see that whole process going on. this is a 48 hour forecast. see this power house wind max, we call that a scret streak and on the nose of those you get lift and rain develops. that thing is the main event and it's not in here until early next week, probably later monday and monday night. 54 in chicago at the moment. very cool. up to the north. this is the air we will tap later next week. we had some really cool autumn air coming in. the weekend will be mild as we move from our 56 into the air mass that has st. louis at 68 now. and kansas city at 64. we could be flirting with 70s in a month that already has produced ten 70s twice the normal number. we checked records. we normally have from this
12:34 pm
point forward about three 70s left and november 2 marks the average last day for a 70- degree temperature at midway airport. that's the average date. so we are getting close to that. there is still a little life left in the warm air masses that populate this region and you can see the warm up through the central u.s. winds are blowing nflt at 17. humidity 38%. dew point 27. and there is a pretty good look at these thunderstorms in oklahoma. vanguard of the rains that are moving northeastward. from time to time we will get under those and we don't want to diminish how significant they will be when they occur it will rain enough to interrupt outdoor activities and it won't be raining all the time. frost and freeze advisories where you see the purple areas and that's because that's the same cool high pressure we have been in. see the isobars packed here between this high and this low? these strong southerly winds will start clouding the skies over in our area and you can see the waves of rain. and the model depicts it pretty
12:35 pm
well here. how these things come in from time to time. might even get some peeks of sun mixed in. the brighter blues are here which is where the heavier rains are. we aren't in it those so the rains are scattered across this area. particularly tomorrow and more humid in the process. here is our forecast. cap of course we have a full moon tonight. the hunters moon will probably not see that all the night as clouds start coming in. sunny this afternoon. some clouds arrive later in the day. turning breezy, milder and high 65. southwest wind at 8 to 18 miles per hour. tonight, increasing cloudiness. breezy. milder. there could be a shower toward morning in some areas. low 52. south, southwest wind 12 to 24 and gusty. then tomorrow extense of cloudiness. windy, warmer. several spells of showers and thunderstorms. high of 70. gusty south to southwest wind 12 to 24 with some 30 miles per hour plus guests at times and
12:36 pm
then sunday extense of cloudiness. windy, mild. several waves of showers and storms but a high of 72. that's about, gosh, 13 degrees above normthal time of year. that's a bonus weekend in terms of temperature. >> right. >> the rain can hold off for the events. >> absolutely. >> we will tell you more about tropical storm richard in a bit in the caribbean and look into next week on our seven-day forecast later on. see you then. >> happy friday. we will be right back.

former governor rod blagojevich until april. his attorneys he has just three this time so they needed more time to prepare. he was scheduled for retrial in january. we will have much more on this on the news at 5:00 p.m. we continue our interviews with candidates in key general election races now. the green party's candidate for cook county board president. running against the democrat and republican. tom, thank you for coming in. you are running under the banner of a third party. don't have a lot of campaign cash. not much name recognition. you are the underdog how do you plan to win? >> your lead into this piece is telling the people all they need to know. the trial for the governor is delayed. we have one republican governor in the poky and second one heading to the poky. so it's time for a change, wouldn't you say? the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting a different result. trying to give the people of illinois a third way, a green party way. >> one of the issues here is
12:45 pm
remaining sales tax increase and so the question is do you want it to go away and how quickly will you try to do that? >> if i'm elected the first set of phone calls i will make to the other county commissioners to line up the votes. anyone who says they can't roll back that sales tax immediately is drinking the machine's kool- aid. meaning that this county is ripe with corruption and waste. i have a bunch of articles on the table right here, carla oglesby in prison for corruption. she wants unemployment benefits. beavers subpoenaed. county upset with fraudulent minority contracts on and on. >> how do you address that? how do you man to clean house? >> few major things. first we will cut the head count by 10% across the board. a former head of the personnel department told me that you could lose 10% of the workers in cook county and not miss them. that's a scandal right there. i :owould end the tax increment
12:46 pm
financing plan. the districts. that's a huge scandal. and source of slush funds for the democratic machine. i would constitute oforensic audit, this is every line item, every contract would be scrutinize wad fresh eye. and a desk audit meaning every single employee will be reviewed for fitness and appropriateness of hire. >> you never held public office but you been active politically. in fact, you were one of the leaders of the challenge to chicago's bid for the 2016 olympics. didn't want it here. and now feel as though by your contribution to that failed effort by helping derail the 2016 olympics, you save taxpayers in this country $1,000 each. come on, how do you come up with that? >> the toronto -- the vancouver games just went over, left the citizens there with $1.5 billion in debt. that's a much smaller city. london games are $12 billion overbudget. this is chicago. we never seen a big project
12:47 pm
here we can't bungle. our own numbers we ran on the true cost of the game had it at twice the official number. we simply divided by the taxpayers and i came up with a rough number and saved the taxpayers a thousand dollars. you're elcome -- welcome. >> you want to spend money on a health care summit. we seen on a national level it garners so many different opinions. already a plan underway to restructure health care in the county. so why spend more money. >> you know, i have been to some of the proceedings and it's a little corporate for my tastes. it seems like it's a large corporation discussing underperforming target stores so we aren't selling enough micro wives let's jettison that whole department. i want to bring service and need that i think is lacking. so for example one of the things i would be proposing is a series of storefront health clinics staffed by nurse practitioners. very similar to what you see at cvs or wall greens and this is appropriate reimbursed by insurance companies to reach
12:48 pm
into areas of need very quickly. >> candidate for cook county board president. thank you. you have to catchy slogan here, unbossed and unbought reading off your business card. >> guy that nobody -- >> lunch break coming up next. cooking with a fall favorite. pumpkin. the chef is here to make a fun appetizer. i know the best card you're holding. you do? your medicare card.

12:52 pm
pumpkin puree. comes out of oven and put it through a food mill and kitchen aid and beat it around so it's smooth. and what we are looking for is something like this. food processor or potato ricer and once it's out of the oven, puree it and we will pop it back into the oven for ten minutes because you want the steam out of there. make sure it's dry. >> how do we make them. let's put them in the flower first. plop them in there. and give us four or five in there. >> get a couple of them. >> we were doing traditional egg wash. flour first, egg and bread crumbs and check this out. we will put pumpkin seeds, ground pumpkin seeds in there. that will -- >> put flour over these? >> put a little love right in the middle. this is our goat cheese. >> infusing them with goat cheese. >> we let that sit out at room temperature so it's nice and
12:53 pm
