Worst in the nation? Yup, and no signs of improvement.
Mayor Lightfoot’s claim that Chicago is making “actuarial” pension payments is incorrect and misleading.
Let’s face it: what are the true prospects for pension reform in Illinois and Chicago?
Once more, from the top, it’s trivial and unhelpful to blame contribution underpayments for the city’s pension woes.
What will it take for Mayor Lightfoot to lead the city towards sustainable pensions?
