Mike Absher | Eye on Education
From time to time on the program, we cover issues that don't get a lot of attention in most classrooms...but affect our daily lives, sometimes in profound ways. Economic development is one of those issues. While many places in Illinois have been struggling, Marion is thriving. Fred Martino interviews Marion Mayor Mike Absher.
