Ward Reports December 02, 2022

Ald. Tom Tunney (44) tweetedThis #WorldAIDSDay I will be remembering those we've lost and thanking those who continue to fight for our health! Our ward has so many resources, like AIDS Garden Chicago, which detail Lakeview's history of HIV/AIDS advocacy. Find ways to get involved at -https://44thward.org/resources/lgbt/

Ald. Sophia King (4) tweetedApplications are open for the @ChicagoDCASE 2023 Chicago Presents Program! Nonprofits and for-profit businesses can request support for events across artistic disciplines that are free and open to the public.  The deadline to apply is 12/15/22 5pm CT http://chicagoculturalgrants.org.”

Comm. Brandon Johnson (D-1) tweeted “Today, I had the pleasure of spending some time with the young men of @MicheleClarkHS as they remind all men that our health matters. Today's partnership with @RushMedical promotes healthy lifestyles for men.”

Comm. Sean Morrison (R-17), in response to news that Illinois experienced the highest unemployment rate in the U.S. for a second straight month, tweeted “Yay We are # 1. Oh wait…😔 it’s what we all know. But fear to say, Illinois voters seem to embrace failure, unemployment, taxes & lawlessness. Proof? Well they voted back into office the very same failed politicians whose horrid policies created the current tumult in Illinois.”

Ald. Byron Sigcho Lopez (25) posted on Facebook “Rally to Tax the Rich! This Sunday, join Alderman Byron Sigcho Lopez and Seattle  Councilmember Kshama Sawant in a rally to tax Amazon and to tax the billionaire class to fund our futures. Through the corrupt property tax assessment system that gives discounts to Illinois's most affluent property owners, to the disproportionate sales tax that taxes essential goods, even groceries, and leaves LaSalle Street trades entirely untaxed, working people organizing together can fight for our government to fund our futures!

Join us Sunday, December 4th at 7pm at 2102 W Cermak to hear from Councilmember Sawant and Alderperson Sigcho Lopez on how we can fight in Seattle and Chicago to grow our movement to put working people first and tax the rich!”
