Ald. Pat Dowell (3) shared a Crain’s article about population growth in Bronzeville and wrote, “I am proud of the work our community is doing in Bronzeville!! Let’s keep it up. Bronzeville remains a community of diverse housing markets.”  

Ald. Byron Sigcho-Lopez (25) tweeted that President Joe Biden’s appointment of Rahm Emanuel as U.S. ambassador to Japan is “a slap in the face to our immigrant communities by the Biden Administration. Are we human beings or not?”  

Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa (35) tweeted, “Thank you @ToniPreckwinkle for requiring county workers get vaccinated against COVID. @chicagosmayor, it's time Chicago do the same - for the health of our city and our city’s public workforce.” 

Ald. Andre Vasquez (40) wrote in his latest newsletter, “When we allow our neighborhoods to remain disinvested and bereft of mental health/social services, of job opportunities, of quality community investment, and a fair chance at succeeding, we end up with generations of people who see no other recourse but to engage in criminal activity that often escalates to violence. We can continue to focus on the individuals who commit crime, but if we ignore the environment that produces them, we fall short in solving the problem.”  

Ald. Brendan Reilly (42) wrote in his latest newsletter that he is “disappointed with the direction of current policing strategies, such as eliminating foot pursuits. The Alderman is urging CPD to conduct a top-down reevaluation of public safety policies.” 

Ald. Michele Smith (43) tweeted that the “Park District has a bad habit of trying to commercialize our parks. Stop. So how did those Amazon lockers land in Chicago parks, anyway?”
