Ward Reports August 31, 2021

Ald. Daniel La Spata (1) tweeted “Biking is one of the cheapest, healthiest, and most sustainable ways to get around. My office and I use experience biking around to fight for better infrastructure, so that other residents can choose to bike around the 1st Ward & City, too.” 

Ald. Sophia King (4) tweeted “It’s the first day back at school! Wishing good luck to all our returning students, teachers and families.” 

Ald. Michael Rodriguez (22) tweeted “ANNOUNCEMENT: The Latino Caucus is excited to open the 2022 CLCF Leadership Academy application process. Apply today for our leadership program intended to highlight Chicago’s Latinx rising stars. Applications are due 10/1/2021 by 11:59pm CST.”  

Ald. Gilbert Villegas (36) tweeted a copy of a letter addressed to President Joe Biden signed by 17 aldermen saying they welcome Afghan refugees to Chicago. “As a Marine who fought in Desert Shield/Storm, it’s important to ensure that those that assisted the US Government not be left behind. We cannot turn our back on our allies. Chicago stands ready to assist with the relocation of Afghans seeking refuge in the US,” Villegas wrote.  

Ald. Maria Hadden (49) tweeted “Help us convince the [Chicago Park District] that Chicago residents deserve life rings and water safety signage at the lake. We’ve been demanding life rings for a couple of years and they keep telling us their lawyers say they’re concerned with liability. We’re concerned with saving lives.” Hadden also included a video explaining her efforts. 

Cook County Board Comm. Scott Britton (D-14) tweeted “I denounce Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara for his consistent, deplorable, and hateful remarks. Hate has no place in public discourse. Mr. Catanzara must resign.”
