Statement from Mayor Rahm Emanuel on the Passing of Lacy Banks

Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

Lacy was not just a sports writer; he was a trailblazer in his field. By sharing his courtside seat with the City for nearly four decades and writing in beautiful detail, he told a story that was bigger than sport; he told a story about how a team can tie a City’s hopes and communities together. Lacy’s dedication to his craft came not just from love of the game, but from his love for Chicago. We mourn the loss of a great Chicagoan today and my thoughts and prayers are with Lacy’s family.
