Ward Reports April 14, 2022

Ald. Susan Sadlowski Garza (10) in a thread tweeted “Today, I'm proud to have presided over the passage of an ordinance which will strengthen our workplace protections against sexual harassment in Chicago. Through this ordinance, workers in Chicago will now have a year to report sexual harassment complaints with the Chicago Commission on Human Rights, businesses will be required to post sexual harassment protections at their locations, and violators will face stricter fines for misconduct. Sexual harassment in the workplace is not a new phenomenon - in fact, statistics show that over 80% of women have experienced some form of sexual harassment, and over 40% of men.”  

Ald. George Cardenas (12) shared a Tribune editorial arguing an independent commission should oversee the city’s remap and tweeted, “It’s hard to argue against this editorial. I still have faith that we can work this out. Let’s leave the egos at the door and make Chicago the city that it can be.”  

Ald. Raymond Lopez (15) tweeted “Thank you Sheikh Mostafa Ismael, Mamon Hussein, Hassan Nijem and the entire Islamic Community Center of Illinois family for allowing me to join your Iftar with our first responders and other guests. #Ramadan”  

Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa (35) tweeted “1 in 3 Americans has a criminal record. Nearly 1 in 2 Americans has an immediate family member who's been jailed. The U.S. imprisons more of our people per capita than any other nation. And are we safer? No. The U.S. is obsessed with punishment, not safety.”  

Ald. Andre Vasquez (40) tweeted “Harold Washington is the greatest Mayor Chicago has ever had, and personal hero of mine. Harold taught us the power of coalition, and how to lead with love. He was “fairer than fair” and his leadership approach is one I try my best to model. Happy 100, Harold!”  

Ald. James Cappleman (46) tweeted “Do you have any furniture you no longer need? Consider donating your gently used furniture to a cause that will help others”
