Former Chicago Mayor Lightfoot Gets Paid to Teach Students How to Run a City in Crisis

Harvard University is paying failed Ex-Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot to teach students how to run a city in crisis and deal with the media.

One would argue that “running a city” and “dealing with the media” is what Lightfoot miserably failed on.

The failed leader had a new speaking job lined up shortly after being booted from office.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, during the graduate-level course, “Lightfoot said she’ll use a mock press conference, a simulated community meeting, and guest speakers to teach in part about the dangers of politicizing a pandemic and how to interact with the media, drawing on lessons learned from running a city amid COVID-19.”

Lightfoot told WBEZ:

“I heard that from the students yesterday — they want to learn from somebody who’s kind of been on the front lines and in the trenches,” Lightfoot said after her first class.

“But also how you bring people together in a moment of crisis, how you get things done, how you build lasting foundations to build on to address other issues that come up.”

Lightfoot’s record with the media is good, as we all know.

The Sun-Times reports:

“While Lightfoot attempted throughout her term to build a relationship with journalists by holding off-record roundtable discussions with the City Hall press corps and other corners of Chicago media, her news conferences became increasingly tense through her tenure, and by the end of her term she stopped holding press availabilities all together.

Lightfoot often complained of unfair media coverage and attributed it, in part, to the state of the news industry — that the demand by hedge fund and corporate owners for clicks and pageviews is influencing coverage. It’s a theory she repeated in the interview.

Lightfoot is known for punishing reporters who dared to do their job and question her about her awful leadership.

Last year, William J. Kelly, a contributor to the London-based Daily Mail, filed a federal lawsuit against Lightfoot, accusing her of silencing him for questioning her administration’s failures.

Watch

Lightfoot failed to address the city’s concerns as it bucked under skyrocketing crime.

Commies and Demoncrats(Sorry I repeat myself) always protect their own. She will stay long enough to get tenure and a pension. That’s why home/charter schools and Trade schools are the way to go. No more endowments and a Federal Tax on them. Starve these Commie factories out of b******s. Go back to working your way up the ladder. The best bosses I had were ones that started at my level and worked their way up. The worst were the ones who came from college. Just because they had a piece of paper hanging in their office they knew everything.
