Her clout bore a familiar name:
The Sun-Times reported that the Rev. Jesse Jackson had twice intervened with schools officials on behalf of Jewel’s — last year and also in 2010. Jackson said he called CPS CEO Forrest Claypool in 2015 to defend the company because he’s known Lockhart for years, describing her as an “outstanding community servant” who often donated the use of her firm’s buses free of charge.
Free of charge not lately, in view of her $1.1 million earnings 2009 through 2011. Did Rev.Jesse also speak up for her when the park disttict hired her company after CPS fired her?
