kathy-jackyMayor-elect Rahm Emanuel has selected CNT’s Kathy Tholin and Jacky Grimshaw to participate on two transition teams that will help shape his administration’s policies around sustainability, energy, and transportation.

CNT Chief Executive Officer Kathy Tholin will bring her 30+ years of experience promoting sustainable policies to the Energy, Environment, and Public Space Committee. Jacky Grimshaw, CNT’s Vice President for Policy, will put her experience in public policy advocacy, transportation research and community economic development to use on Emmanuel’s Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. Jacky is also a board member of the Chicago Transit Authority.

CNT looks forward to bringing our knowledge and experience to the table to ensure not only a smooth transition for Mayor-elect Emanuel, but also a vision for a more sustainable and equitable Chicago. “Even in these challenging times, Chicago has many opportunities to improve. We’re excited to help the new Administration make Chicago more sustainable and affordable”, said Kathy Tholin.
