Ward Reports June 08, 2022

Ald. Michael Rodriguez (22) tweeted, “GOP candidate Bailey calls for “more psychiatrists and funding for mental health” but votes against Governor JB Pritzker’s budget which provided over $200M in additional violence prevention funding. Completely inept, in 2019 he raffled an AR15.”  

Ald. Michele Smith (43) wrote in her latest newsletter, “We are very proud of the quality public education available to students in our Ward. However, there remain educational gaps for some who come from within our enrollment boundaries who tend to underperform at Lincoln Park High School. This is a well-known issue, and our principals at the high school have worked hard to ensure that these children are given every opportunity and resource to succeed.”  

Ald. Tom Tunney (44) wrote in his latest newsletter, “I support an assault weapons ban which would make it illegal for civilians to purchase the type of high capacity, semi-automatic weapons of war that the shooter used this 4th of July. This year as a City Council member I have supported calling on the State to ban untraceable "ghost guns" and voted to increase funding for City mental health budgets by over $20M.  

Ald. James Cappleman (46) tweeted, “The Commission on Chicago Landmarks unanimously passed the proposal at 640 W Irving Park (formerly the American Islamic College). One commissioner remarked about the strong opinions that sometimes surface within the 46th Ward. I smiled in agreement, but it's so healthy, too!”  

Ald. Matt Martin (47) tweeted of plans for Soldier Field, “Yes to aerial gondolas. No to replacing the largest harbor in Chicago with parking???”
