Dear Mayor Lightfoot,
I am writing to express my heartfelt gratitude for your outstanding leadership and dedication to the city of Chicago these past few years. Your tireless efforts to make our city more equitable and prosperous did not go unnoticed, and I believe that Chicago is a better place because of your leadership.
Your prioritization of addressing the systemic issues that have historically disadvantaged black and brown communities created a more equitable and inclusive city. Your efforts to promote economic opportunity and social justice have been transformative.
Your commitment to public safety was particularly admirable, especially in the face of the unprecedented challenges the COVID-19 pandemic brought. Your swift action to protect the health and well-being of Chicagoans was commendable, and your efforts to ensure that frontline workers had the resources they needed were truly inspiring.
During those hard times, your steady hand and clear vision were a beacon of hope for all of us. Despite the uncertainty and fear we all experienced over the past years, your leadership helped us overcome these challenges and emerge stronger.
Thank you again for your leadership, dedication, and commitment to our great city. It is an honor to have had you as our Mayor, and I am confident that you will continue to inspire us all in the years to come.
Tu amigo siempre,
Jaime di Paulo, IHCC President & CEO
