In her first State of the City address delivered last summer, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said that Chicago faces an $838 billion shortfall with much of the debt driven by the city’s runaway pension liabilities. By Moody’s estimates, the massive deficit leaves the average Chicago household on the hook for $145,000 in government debt that will continue to rise under the current fiscal structure.
