Chicago mayoral candidate Lori Lightfoot released her first TV ad of the runoff election, “Change.” Filmed primarily at Lightfoot’s election night celebration, the ad captures the grassroots momentum that propelled Lightfoot to first place and highlights the importance of electing an independent reformer to bring needed change all across the city. This is Lightfoot’s second TV ad. Lightfoot released her first TV ad, “Light,” on February 6th.
“I traveled across the city and saw people struggling with repossessed cars and rising rent,” says Lightfoot in the ad. “With underfunded neighborhood schools and gun violence on their blocks. I know, on a deeply personal level, that we need change. This election is about demanding an independent, accountable City Hall that serves the people, not the political machine.”
