The Commissioner of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection, Rosemary Krimbel, will be leaving her post later this month to head a new initiative to modernize and streamline city code, according to a press release from the Mayor’s Office. Her replacement is Maria Guerra Lapacek, from the Mayor’s Office of Legislative Counsel and Government Affairs.

The Committee for Media Access has had a great working relationship over the years with Ms. Krimbel, and we are sad to see her go. “We met multiple times with Commissioner Krimbel to discuss our concerns about the future of CAN TV, and it’s clear that she cares about the public,” said Jake Austen, CMA member. We thank her for her involvement in the 2012 RCN franchise deal that provided important public benefits to CAN TV.
We look forward to getting to know the new Commissioner, Ms. Guerra Lapacek, and working with her on the Comcast franchise renewal to maintain strong public access television benefits for the people of Chicago.
Best of luck to Ms. Krimbel in her new position, where we are sure she will be just as effective and responsive as she has been during her tenure with BACP.
