Ward Reports December 13, 2021

Ald. Sophia King (4) wrote in her latest newsletter, “Safety continues to be a concern in the ward and a priority for our office as we tackle various incidents throughout the ward and the city. Our concern has been particularly highlighted over the last weeks with shootings in Grand Boulevard, North Kenwood Oakland and Hyde Park; a pattern of vehicular jackings in Douglas; and the attempted vehicular jacking in the south loop and Oakland.” 

Ald. Raymond Lopez (15) tweeted, “Lightfoot’s strategy is not about lifting Chicago’s tide & raising all boats but rather to lower the societal standards, bringing all communities to the lowest starting point possible. Her leadership is not about equity. It’s about forcing negative equality onto all communities.” 

Ald. Rossana Rodriguez-Sanchez (33) tweeted, “I just finished my last paper for the 3rd semester of my MSW at @NEIU and I’m exhausted and very very proud.” 

Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa (35) tweeted, “When you're driving west on Barry in Lakeview you see some garish city McMansions, but then it's okay because you pass the one-story brick house with the curved glass block wall at Barry and Leavitt. If you know, you know.  

Ald. Andre Vasquez (40) tweeted about a potential citywide vaccine mandate and wrote, “It makes perfect sense to do this. In the winter people will be more closely packed into space and we have variants. The fact that this is a debate is what’s ridiculous.” 

 Ald. Brendan Reilly (42) wrote in his latest newsletter that he is “asking residents to participate in a postcard writing campaign to State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s Office and Chief Judge Evans t express concerns about the lack of accountability and releasing individuals accused of violent crimes on electronic monitoring.    

Ald. Matt Martin (47) wrote in his latest newsletter  that he “hosted a town hall during which State Rep. Kelly Cassidy, 33rd Ald. Rossana Rodriguez Sanchez, and representatives from Thresholds and the city of Albuquerque discussed a recently created pilot in the 19th Police District in which police officers are paired with paramedics and crisis workers to respond to certain mental-health-related 911 calls.”  

Cook County Comm. Sean Morrison (R-17) wrote in his latest newsletter of the Jussie Smollett conviction: “So the question remains, what happens next? It's very clear that Kim Foxx's office had its thumb squarely on the scale of justice for a celebrity friend. Elected officials in Cook County should muster their courage and call for her to resign, I’ll start!”
