A tale of 2 cities… Chi is about 3-4 hours away, huge diff in Lori Lightfoot’s first day and Lyda Krewson’s entire stint. Not that I trust Lori Lightfoot. I don’t. I trust politicians to be politicians… to do what’s political advantageous. She’s riding the change wave…and is benefiting from the downfall of corrupt politicians such as Ald Burke… whereas in St.Louis, regional leaders are trying to personally come up off political corruption being exposed. But don’t confuse any of this with fighting for ‘the people’. If ‘the people’ benefit, they benefit. If not, not.
