Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Thursday was awarded Person of the Year by Chicago Lawyer Magazine. Yes, she is the first black woman to run the city, and yes she has been in the news lately because of some shocking moves that were made, but for the most part I think she is a good candidate for such an honor.
With her staunch work ethic, illustrious legal career and winning the mayoral election unanimously in all wards across Chicago, the honor is well-deserved. Just like with any person, there are those who may not agree with some of the decisions that she has made recently, however, her style is very straight-forward, she appears to be transparent and we still have many more months to go to see what a difference her leadership will have on the city of Chicago.
Congratulations Mayor Lightfoot.
