Ald. Raymond Lopez (15) tweeted about a redevelopment project for a design studio and visual art spaces, writing "a great project gets the green light from the Budget Committee! Thank you to Mayor Emanuel for awarding this grant previously and to this administration on working with Bridgewater in securing the city’s first local hire reimbursement grant!" 

Ald. Jeanette Taylor (20) retweeted her endorsement of the recently formed Experimental Station Union in Woodlawn: “The Experimental Station does some great work in the community. I love what they do with young people. But do we do it at the cost of workers feeling intimidated and feeling like they’re not appreciated?”

Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa (35) knocked Mayor Lori Lightfoot in a Twitter thread about the Empowering Communities for Public Safety ordinance, writing "Mayor Lightfoot says she doesn't want meaningful civilian oversight or community control of police because "she wears the jacket" for public safety. This is a major departure from what she said while running for mayor."
