I look forward to partnering with the Chamber as mayor to give entrepreneurs and small businesses the tools they need to thrive and to make sure we invest in neighborhoods that have been left behind for far too long. With the support of the Chamber, and the support of working families all across Chicago, we can finally build a Chicago where everyone in every neighborhood has opportunity and security,” said Lightfoot.
