Ald. Raymond Lopez (15) tweeted, “Not “may,” but WILL include a 5.5% increase in the FY2023 year’s budget possibly 8.5-10% increase for FY2024. BTW: those mandatory Lori tax increases are scheduled for the next 45 years!”  

Ald. Silvana Tabares (23) wrote in her latest newsletter, “Great job to Cook County Sheriff's Office for replacing over 60 vehicle light bulbs for the residents in the community. Special thanks to Fr. Miguel for allowing the use of St. Nicholas of Tolentine Parish parking lot and to Cook County Comm. Alma Anaya, State Rep. Aaron Ortiz, and State Rep. Angelica Guerrero-Cuellar for the collaboration.”  

Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa (35) tweeted, “A more just and equitable world will not be won on Twitter or through infighting in leftist organizations. A more just and equitable world will be won through base building in our workplaces and in our communities. We must base build, always.”  

Ald. Anthony Napolitano (41) wrote in his latest newsletter, “I am writing to provide an update regarding infrastructure throughout the entire City of Chicago. On June 7, 2022, workers at three major companies halted work due to contractual discussions. These three companies produce aggregate material, such as sand, gravel, and stone needed for asphalt and concrete. The longer this contractual discussion continues the more detrimental it is to this year's infrastructure projects.”
