Pastor Prays for Police after Progressive Mayor Wins Election
April 6, 2023 | Illinois
Chicago needs to ensure its police remain motivated to curb crime and not disheartened following the election of another soft-on-crime mayor, a pastor in the city’s South Side said.
“My main concern is the morale of the police department,” Pastor Corey Brooks told Fox News. “I think the police force is kind of disheartened and may be a little disenchanted because of this whole situation.”
“My prayer is that they won’t just sit back and not take action as a result of the mayoral election,” he added.
In a win for progressive politics, Cook County Commissioner Brandon Johnson was elected mayor of Chicago on Tuesday, defeating moderate Democrat Paul Vallas, the former head of Chicago Public Schools. (Excerpt from Fox News.)
