My name is Lori Lightfoot, and I am the next mayor of Chicago.
In order for Chicago to remain a world-class city, we need to create a new path. A path in which fairness and inclusion are our guiding principles. As our mayor, I will respect the experiences of all Chicagoans and ensure our city government works to uplift the quality of life for everyone.
We can, and we must, do better. We must do better to address the taxes and fees that burden middle- and low-income families. We must do better to halt the declining conditions of our neighborhood schools. We must do better to change an education policy that does not view parents, teachers, principals, staff or other stakeholders as valued partners. We must do better by insisting on a comprehensive plan to invest in families and neighborhoods, and to end the violence that plagues too many communities. We can do this, together. This is my commitment and my promise to you. Please join me.
