Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot leads a city with some of the highest crime rates in the U.S. but over the weekend she meet with Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg — as supply chain issues continue to plague American consumers — to discuss how to achieve “fair and equitable” transportation.
“We think that if we invest in the places that have been disinvested in for years or decades, we are creating the opportunities that lead to safety,” Buttigieg said to a group of Chicago politicians Saturday.
“As we build up our infrastructure, we must do so in a smart way,” Lightfoot said. “So that all residents can share in it…(and receive) all the opportunities that come with it.”
