Another candidate joins Chicago mayoral race – Chicago Tribune

Good afternoon, Chicago.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot ran a budget deficit of $127.9 million today, which is by far the smallest deficit of her term as she campaigns for a second term.

The Tribune’s Gregory Pratt and AD Quig report that the city is also looking at a $42.7 million property tax hike as part of its policy of linking Chicago’s annual property tax hike to the rise in consumer prices.

Meanwhile, another candidate has entered the Chicago mayoral race. South side Ald. Sophia King has announced her run. This is who’s in, who’s out, and who’s undecided in the mayoral race.
