Mayor Lori Lightfoot

[VIDEO] As of Monday Chicago has a new mayor in Lori Lightfoot. Last month she defeated county board president Toni Preckwinkle to occupy city hall's fifth floor as mayor of Chicago succeeding Rahm Emanuel.

Emanuel I hear already has a new gig as a contributing editor to The Atlantic and a contributor to ABC News.

Meanwhile we're already two days into Lightfoot's mayorality and is already busy putting her staff into place. She also attempting to chip away at Aldermanic prerogative.

Above is her inaugural address from Monday, which is one speech I never had a chance to fully follow. It's just about 40 minutes so it's a long haul to follow. I'm curious about her agenda as mayor for the next four years.
