The Definitive Tony Peraica Interview, Part One

On May 29, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Tony Peraica in his law office, deep in Chicago's south side. The result was 63 minutes' worth of incredible video, in which he shares family stories, memories of his youth, and more. Peraica reveals a side of himself rarely seen by the general public. To be sure, he takes the gloves off when speaking about fellow Cook County commissioners and other politicians, but that's for a later chapter. In Part One, Peraica talks about himself, his family history, his dreams and aspirations, conversion from Democrat to Republican, and his days as a night club disc jockey. If you really want to know Tony Peraica, I urge you to watch this video. I think it will surprise you. The interview surprised the heck out of me. (See all six videos in the series.)
