As Mayor Lightfoot Approaches 2nd Election Anniversary, BGA Assesses How She’s Doing

As Mayor Lori Lightfoot's 2nd election anniversary approaches, the Better Government Association is assessing how she's doing.

The Better Government Association and PolitiFact paired up to fact check a claim from Illinois Republicans regarding the state's COVID-19 vaccine priorities.

As Mayor Lori Lightfoot's second anniversary of her municipal election approaches, the Better Government Association is looking into how she's doing in her role.
BGA President David Greising wrote a column for the Chicago Tribune about the many problems Lightfoot is facing, including crime, Chicago Public Schools issues, financial problems and, of course, the COVID-19 pandemic.

The BGA also has a Lightfoot Tracker that their Policy Team put a lot of effort into, Greising said.

This tool covers policy decisions that Lightfoot is making and how they fare with the agenda BGA put together after her election win. It also includes what the BGA thinks she needs to focus on and updates on both the promises she's kept and those she's broken.
