As Mayor Lori Lightfoot's 2nd election anniversary approaches, the Better Government Association is assessing how she's doing.

CHICAGO (WLS) -- As Mayor Lori Lightfoot's second anniversary of her municipal election approaches, the Better Government Association is looking into how she's doing in her role.

BGA President David Greising wrote a column for the Chicago Tribune about the many problems Lightfoot is facing, including crime, Chicago Public Schools issues, financial problems and, of course, the COVID-19 pandemic.

The BGA also has a Lightfoot Tracker that their Policy Team put a lot of effort into, Greising said.

This tool covers policy decisions that Lightfoot is making and how they fare with the agenda BGA put together after her election win. It also includes what the BGA thinks she needs to focus on and updates on both the promises she's kept and those she's broken.

You can find the tracker on the Better Government Association website at
