With major crime reports up 41% last year and Chicago police staffing down 12% since she became mayor, Lori Lightfoot says she has a public safety plan that’s working.

“We’re seeing steady improvements in public safety efforts,” Lightfoot tweeted on January 3.

“Much more to do, but we are on the right path,” she said in another tweet on January 5.

“When it comes to addressing crime in our city, I’ve got a plan — and it’s working,” Lightfoot said in a tweet Tuesday morning that included her latest campaign ad.

In the spot, an unidentified man blames “haters” for the city’s crime perception problem. The mayor, says the man, “has got a plan. She’s putting more police on the streets and getting more guns off of them.”
