Ferguson sat down for an extensive exit interview with The Daily Line’s Alex Nitkin to catalog a litany of issues he said are still undermining the public’s trust in city government, from lax oversight by the City Council to structural shortcomings in the Chicago Police Department and broken promises by Mayor Lori Lightfoot.
