WBBM: Grassroots groups say mayor Lightfoot has failed on a promise
Grassroots groups say mayor Lightfoot has failed on a promised to help tens of thousands of people in Chicago who are homeless. April Harris with the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless says the mayor dropped her support for a measure that would have hiked the real estate transfer tax to raise needed funds to tackle homelessness it was a one-time payment which would raise 175 million. We need a dedicated revenue stream. The she has claimed there’s only 6000 people homeless, there’s over 65,000 plus all Mayor Lightfoot’s administration has offered to meet with them, but only after the mid-November deadlines fast forgetting the measure.
