Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa (35) narrowly avoided being censured by his colleagues on Tuesday, just one day after he resigned from his position as Mayor Brandon Johnson’s floor leader and the chair of the Committee on Zoning, Landmarks and Building Standards.
The vote on whether to censure Ramirez-Rosa came during the same City Council meeting where Ald. Emma Mitts (37) publicly detailed how Ramirez-Rosa physically blocked her from coming into a special City Council meeting last week where alderpeople called for a vote on a proposal to ask voters if Chicago should remain a sanctuary city. Other members of the City Council, including Ald. Nicole Lee (11) and Ald. Felix Cardona (31), also said Ramirez-Rosa threatened to hold up zoning decisions in the wards if they attended last week’s special City Council meeting.
