Ward Reports June 30, 2021

Ald. Daniel La Spata (1) wrote in his latest newsletter about the "Chicago Rescue Plan" proposal he introduced last week laying out how the city should spend $1.9 billion in federal American Rescue Plan funds, saying people "deserve to know that this money has been available to the City for appropriation for more than a month, but we have heard intentions to hold these dollars until the 2022 City budget.,” which he called “unacceptable for our residents who need relief from the pandemic now, and to our residents who will benefit from expanded services and a reorientation of public safety and community-based violence prevention programming.” 

Ald. Raymond Lopez (15) tweeted “Joining 19 of my colleagues in demanding public hearing in advance of the 4th of July weekend. Otherwise we will cal a special City Council meeting and demand [Chicago Police Supt. David Brown]’s participation.”  

Ald. Rossana Rodriguez-Sanchez (33) in a thread tweeted photos of herself with members of SEIU Local 73 rallying in the lobby of the Cook County building “to demand a #FairContract. We here for it.” 

Ald. Maria Hadden (49) tweeted “Due to the success of the shared streets program, Paulina will remain a shared street for this summer. Shared streets allow us to reimagine our space. Local organizations and businesses will still be able to accommodate deliveries or pick-ups.”  

Cook County Comm. Kevin Morrison (D-15) retweeted a New York Times article on children’s mental health and wrote “the number of children in crisis is on the rise. We must do more to make mental health services affordable and accessible.”
