Ward Reports April 29, 2024

Ald. Daniel La Spata (1) posted "Earlier this month I had the opportunity to attend Elevated Chicago's ETODay Party celebrating some of the equitable transit-oriented development projects underway across the city. Big thanks to @elevated_chi for having me!"

Alderman Daniel La Spata (1) posted “Statement regarding the Bears' plans for Soldier Field:

It would be an understatement to say 1st Ward residents have expressed strong opinions on the Bears' plans for their new lakefront stadium!”

Alderman Raymond Lopez (15) posted “If only there were institutions of higher learning to educate these misguided youth” regarding Columbia student protestors. 

Ald. Gilbert Villegas (36) posted "I attended the wake of Officer Luis M. Huesca today and I saw first responders in attendance but I also saw everyday Chicagoans in line to pay their respect for Luis. If you see an officer this week, let them know you support them. They need to know that we are here for them.#rip"

Ald. Andre Vasquez (40) posted "Yesterday I was fortunate enough to attend an organizing event, where part of the demand from the state was to secure $1.5 Billion to improve public transportation in Chicago & across the state. Or you know, one Bears Stadium deal. Which do you think would provide more value?"

Alderman Matt Martin (47) posted “I want to honor Daniel Hertz, who is leaving his role as the Department of Housing's Director of Policy, Research, and Legislative Affairs. Our city is a better place because of Daniel's tireless efforts to expand housing affordability and renter protections across Chicago.”

Alderman Debra Silverstein (50) posted “Hate crimes continue to rise to unheard of levels as extremists fan the flames of antisemitism and bigotry across our city and nation. I am grateful to the @Suntimes for publishing my editorial today shining a light on this frightening reality and discussing legislative ways we can reverse the trend. CHI vs Hate, the new anti-hate crime legislation I passed last year, is only a first step. We need cooperation between law enforcement, elected officials, and public stakeholders to keep all our communities safe.”
