After serving as the United States Commissioner General for the USA Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, my focus and dedication to the Chicago community are stronger than ever!
I was honored to introduce Mayor Lori Lightfoot at the City Club of Chicago on April 19th as she discussed her outlook for a strong economic recovery.
Mayor Lightfoot touched on Chicago having the most diverse economy in the nation and the need to lean into its core strengths, including –– manufacturing, transportation, distribution and logistics, life sciences, food and agriculture, and technology.
The city’s current comprehensive economic plans have collaborated with business, labor, and civic leaders alike to formulate the best course of action to reach Chicago’s goals. Chicago will emerge stronger post-Covid than almost any other city in the world. The mayor highlighted 2021’s impressive numbers and optimism about 2022 and beyond.
Our mantra at Clayco is ‘Beyond These Walls’, meaning that we strive to be an integral part of the community wherever we live, work, and build. We are proud to be helping the city of Chicago build back better.
I initially launched Bob Clark Beyond in 2020 to motivate and mentor others. Now, I am thrilled to announce that I am venturing on a deeper mission to spark inspiration and connection with a NEW LOOK!
The death of Alexei Navalny is a tragic and unnecessary loss. Alexei was a prominent Russian opposition leader and a strong advocate for democracy and human rights.
What does FDR have to do with current events and my gluteus medius tendon tear? A lot. For one thing, my tear has provided a great perspective for me after knowing that FDR was stricken with polio at age 39. It has also created a sense of optimism because of how he handled his much, much worse situation and endured his disability with such grace that he became the poster child for “people of determination,” a phrase I heard often while in Dubai.
