Spotlight Politics: Mayor Lightfoot vs. the Council Machine


Mayor Lori Lightfoot issued a stern warning to City Council members in her inaugural address. Our politics team of Carol Marin, Paris Schutz and Amanda Vinicky takes on that story and more in this edition of Spotlight Politics.


Mayor Lori Lightfoot is in her third day on the job. She was sworn in on Monday as the 56th person to run the nation’s third-largest city. And she issued a stern warning to the folks sitting behind her on stage – namely, the 50 City Council members: Business as usual is over.
