13 Oct, 2014

Lewis undergoes emergency surgery after the discovery of a cancerous brain tumor. The Chicago Teachers Union says she is resting comfortably and recovering from her surgery. In a statement, Jhatayn “Jay” Travis, coordinator of the Karen Lewis Exploratory Committee says that Lewis has decided to not pursue a mayoral bid.

Yet she charges us to continue fighting for strong neighborhood schools, safe communities, and good jobs for everyone.
