Chicago Announcements July 12, 2021

Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Friday announced Cesar Rodriguez as her new press secretary. Rodriguez was previously a national news correspondent for the E.W. Scripps Company, a freelance reporter with CBS2 Chicago and a sports anchor at Telemundo Chicago. Lightfoot had not had a permanent press secretary since Jordan Troy stepped down from the post in April. Rodriguez joins Alejandra Flores Rebollar, whom the mayor hired this month as her deputy press secretary for education and human services.  

Lightfoot on Friday announced the launch of the “Summer Kickback Series," an initiative to “provide safe spaces, programs, and other opportunities for Chicago youth, ages 14 to 19 across 15 communities on the South and West side of Chicago.” The Summer Kickback Series is the latest plank of “My CHI My Future,” the mayor's youth afterschool and summer programming initiative.
