Ward Reports April 25, 2022

Ald. Daniel La Spata (1) tweeted, “I'm excited to be celebrating #EarthDay this year with action. Today, the City of Chicago released its Climate Action Plan, and I'm excited to work alongside my colleagues in City Council to achieve the goals laid out in this plan: chicago.gov/climate”  

Ald. Michelle Harris (8) retweeted, “The Chicago United Map is proud to be endorsed by the Chicago Firefighters Union - Local 2. We apprediate you asking all of your members to support our map, the only map backed by the majority of the City Council, on June 28.  

Ald. George Cardenas (12) shared a USA Today column from former General Wesley Clark and wrote, “This guy needs to run for president. Obviously the US has lost the will to be muscular when needed. Mariupol shows why NATO must do more to help”  

Ald. Rossana Rodriguez-Sanchez (33) wrote in her latest newsletter that proposed Chicago Public Schools “budget cuts are very harmful, especially after a pandemic that has left everyone emotionally drained, exhausted, and in need of support. In response to these cuts, I am calling for a hearing with CPS leadership soon, but we need to take immediate action at the next CPS board meeting!”  

Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa (35) tweeted, “With Ald. @DanielLaSpata and #LoganSquare neighbors discussing @ChicagoMap2022 - the only ward redistricting proposal that was created through an open and transparent process, and keeps neighborhoods together by drawing clear, straight lines.”  

Ald. Andre Vasquez (40) tweeted, “The Chicago Reader is a staple in our city and does such amazing work. It is an absolute shame that something so petty is at the source of the conflict here. Mr. Goodman, we need you to the do the right thing. I am proud to stand in solidarity with the staff.”  

Ald. Harry Osterman (48) wrote in his latest newsletter, “Over the last ten years, the number of Single Room Occupancy buildings (SROs) in Chicago has been cut in half. These buildings provide shelter to people at a low cost and help prevent homelessness. This week, the Budget Committee approved an ordinance, a City-funded loan program that would support SRO developers and low-income residents. This ordinance and the funding that it supports will help the residents living in SROs get a better quality of life as they transition to permanent stable housing. I worked closely with the Department of Housing, ONE Northside, and SRO advocates and residents to create and fund this important initiative.”
