“Anthony Beale, alderman of the 9th Ward of Chicago, joined Fox & Friends on Tuesday morning and discussed the violence that has plagued the city in recent months, and most notably, the looting and destruction that took place early Monday morning,” reports the Washington Examiner.
“I think the mayor has lost the confidence and the control of this city. She’s listening to the wrong people, and the wrong people are the ones that’s really leading this unrest in the city of Chicago,” he said of Lightfoot.
“The aldermen are the ones elected by their constituency, and there is a total disregard of listening to the aldermen who knows the post of this city, knows the post of their ward,” he added.
