Chicago's Most Powerful

Three CPS-affiliated people made Chicago Magazine's totally predictable but still fun 100 "Most Powerful" list this year -- 8: Penny Pritzker, 27: Jean-Claude Brizard, and 47: Karen Lewis.  Who'd they leave out, if anyone?   How's the list different from in previous years?  My most powerful list for Chicago schools might include Mike Koldyke, Tim Knowles, Phyllis Lockett, Tim Cawley, Paul Goren.  The groups opposing CPS attempts to close and fix schools are individually small but may count as powerful if you put them together. The Joyce Foundation's John Luczak. State lawmaker Kimberly Lightford, Cynthia Soto, and Mike Madigan would also be on the list.
