As a preface to this week’s broadcast we want to remind everyone that we invite you, the public, to chime in. We encourage your questions or comments that we can (and will) direct to our Mayor on your behalf. As we have said in the past, this is not scripted. As most our viewers know, that’s how we like it.
Each week we bring you a direct conversation with our Mayor covering developments, concerns and progress happening within Freeport, Illinois. We are proud to be able to bring you these segments, which provide a better insight to the person behind the politician than what might be obtained elsewhere. In our time with Freeport Mayor Jim Gitz we have found him incredibly passionate and sincere in his duty to the public and very aware of his responsibility to the office.
Our city, its people, its culture and future mean a lot to us here and we are committed to helping move Freeport forward in a positive direction. As always, we appreciate you tuning in to what we broadcast. Thank you.
This Week, the Mayor discusses the recent $100,000 grant for Pretzel City Kitchens, the Jackowski building progress and he talks about the recent three day series put out by the Freeport Journal Standard about rebuilding Freeport. The Mayor also discussed with us the old Railroad Depot and restoring this bit of history in Freeport. Our interview was cut short this week so we’ll bring you more on that in another episode.

Mayor Quotes in Today’s Segment:
“We socialize the cost, privatize the benefit.”
“If we stop being so negative and start embracing the future and thinking of working together; think globally act locally, some good things will come our way.”
“If I should die tomorrow, I should plant an apple tree today.”
