Ald. Michael Rodriguez (22) tweeted “Proud to bring the St. Anthony Hospital development at 31st and Kedzie to unanimous city approval today.

Ald. Rossana Rodriguez-Sanchez (33) tweeted “Having a participatory budgeting process is a great way to democratize the use of resources so that communities can determine what are the things we need the most. I’m grateful for all the participation and so happy for all the projects that will be funded in our neighborhoods!”  

Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa (35) tweeted “I don't object to unruly Chicago City Council meetings. Democracy has growing pains, and it's a welcome departure from the highly scripted and tightly controlled Council meetings we experienced under Mayor Emanuel.”  

Ald. Gilbert Villegas (36) tweeted “Happy to have championed, sponsored and passed the legislation that raises the minimum wage above the city’s minimum for employees of companies that are contracted by the airlines at Chicago’s airports. Thank you to my City Council colleagues for supporting.”

Ald. Matt Martin (47) tweeted “Data-driven violence prevention initiatives like CRED and READI reduce community violence. When Republicans defunded them, it made our neighborhoods less safe. Many still live with the devastating impact. We can't afford to make the same mistake again.”
