Ward Reports January 24, 2024

Ald. Raymond Lopez (15) posted "The 'Rules for Thee' crowd infiltrate every corner of government. During a 'briefing' today by @ChiPubSchools Board of Education, board members described the policy shift away from selective enrollment - while failing to mention they opt out of neighborhood schools themselves! They then proceed to tell us that they, the unelected members of the Board, were making decisions contrary to what the duly elected LSC members want: removal of police from schools & replacing them with, among other things, climate change ambassadors."

Ald. Leni Manaa-Hoppenworth (48) posted "So great to be there for Sacred Heart's 'teach-in' for justice where students celebrated our community and talked about the different ways we can support the people who live here. Thank you to the school community, especially the students, for leading this conversation!"

Ald. Jessie Fuentes (26) posted "✂️ Today is an exciting day for the 26th Ward as we just cut the ribbon @ Ivy Hall Logan Square's grand opening! 🙌🏽 This isn't just about a new storefront; it's about investing in our local economy, stimulating business corridors, hiring local, & destigmatizing cannabis use."

Mayor Brandon Johnson posted "We approved a working group in July to determine the feasibility of Plow the Sidewalks, a plan for a municipal sidewalk snow and ice clearing program. Our seniors and individuals living with disabilities should not struggle to navigate City sidewalks. https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/breaking/ct-wheelchair-users-sidewalks-snowstorm-20240122-3jis4farvrbtbltb2alx35essa-story.html"
