Ald. George Cardenas (12) tweeted, "No longer will be called Alderman. I’m ok with that. First name or Last name works. I hope the Bible is not next though." 

Ald. Raymond Lopez (15) tweeted, "A pleasure to join @chicagosmayor & @aldnapolitano41 to welcome the newest class of firefighters & EMTS!"

Ald. Byron Sigcho-Lopez (25) tweeted about the ongoing discussions about an elected school board for Chicago Public Schools. “@chicagosmayor again with platitudes. TODAY @ILSenDems will be voting on the ERSB. Mayor Lightfoot & her rich funders want to continue looting our children’s resources & oppose it. @DonHarmonIL listen to the people, an ERSB will bring democracy & investment to address violence,” he wrote.

Ald. Michele Smith (43) touted the city’s new restrictions on short-term rentals, which went into full effect on Tuesday.

Ald. James Cappleman (46) tweeted about the General Assembly's passage of legislation changing the title "alderman" to "alderperson:" "We stopped saying mailman, policeman, and fireman a long time ago, so it's about time for "alderman" to change," he wrote. "I would have preferred the term council member, but I'll take this."

Ald. Maria Hadden (49) tweeted in recognition of the beginning of Pride Month: "It’s June 1st, which means LGBTQ Pride month has begun. Pride month to me is about being able to show up as your full self. It’s about being able to be with who I love and be out and proud about that."

Comm. Kevin Morrison (D-14) tweeted, "I'm proud to announce that for the first time, @cookcountygov will raise a Pride Flag the entire month of June. Today, at 10 a.m., you're invited to join me, @TheDonnaMiller, and other officials to celebrate the beginning of #PrideMonth."
