Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart is our guest on this edition of NewsViews.We'll discuss Dart's suit against Craigslist for allegedly promoting prostitution. Other issues will include his battles with Cook County Board President Todd Stroger to try to avoid cuts in the sheriff's office budget and Dart's opposition to serving eviction notices on some property owners who are losing their homes.

We'll also try to get him to confirm that he definitely will run for a second term. One potential rival is already criticizing him for not having a county gun buyback program, similar to such programs in Chicago. We'll also get Dart's response to that idea.
