Ward Reports August 16, 2021

Ald. Sophia King (4) shared photos of herself with other elected leaders at the Bud Billiken Parade. 

Ald. Silvana Tabares (23) wrote in her latest newsletter that she joined Ald. Raymond Lopez (15), Ald. Anthony Napolitano (41) and Ald. Jim Gardiner (45) for “bond hearings to show support for Officer French, her partner and their families...Politicians say CPD needs oversight, but the voters can now step up and be the oversight of the politicians who would rather coddle criminals than support victims and their families.” 

Ald. Rossana Rodriguez-Sanchez (33) tweeted that an Amazon locker at a park in her ward “has been removed and there will be no further installations of Amazon lockers on any parks until there is a review of the process. I am still waiting to receive the contractual agreement between Amazon and the Chicago Parks District.” 

Ald. Gilbert Villegas (36) shared a Sun-Times article about South and West Side hospitals facing increased COVID-19 hospitalizations and tweeted, “This looks like a good place to start when we discuss appropriating ARP funds.” 

Ald. Andre Vasquez (40) used the “business highlight” section of his latest newsletter to promote Lincoln Square Barber Shop. 

Ald. Brendan Reilly (42) used his latest newsletter to highlight two development proposals set for consideration by the Chicago Plan Commission on Aug. 19: a pair of mixed-use towers with 777 residential units and 405 hotel keys at 525 S. Wabash Ave., and another pair of towers comprising 1,053 residential units at 601 W. Monroe St.  

Ald. Matt Martin (47) wrote in his latest newsletter that “Officer French's death is a tragedy, as are the deaths of the hundreds of other Chicagoans who have lost their lives this year as a result of gun violence, an epidemic that continues to affect residents of all backgrounds and from every community.” 

Cook County Comm. Scott Britton (D-14) wrote in his latest newsletter that he “visited the Wheeling Fire Department for a tour of the recently constructed Fire Station 23 facilities. This new space better addresses the needs of the department.”
