Ward Reports June 21, 2022

Ald. Daniel La Spata (1) tweeted “A critical step in improving transit service across the CTA is hiring sufficient operators and mechanics for our buses. Starting wage of $24.63 plus benefits! Please share this with your networks, and register for this Saturday’s career fair at the link below!”  

Ald. Silvana Tabares (23) tweeted “Officer wellness IS officer safety; and officer safety IS public safety. Today I joined colleagues and families of fallen officers who unveil a package of reforms to force our police department back on track and provide families the support and respect they deserve.”  

Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa (35) tweeted “The Bodily Autonomy Sanctuary Ordinance will help protect from criminalization people seeking and providing abortion or gender affirming care. I look forward to refining this ordinance in collaboration with my colleagues, the administration, and organizations.”  

Ald. Rossana Rodriguez-Sanchez (33) tweeted “Today I introduced three pieces of legislation that I worked very hard on the last few months: (1) a Bodily Autonomy Sanctuary ordinance to protect from criminalization people seeking or providing gender affirming care or reproductive care (2) an ordinance to allocate $1MM in 2023 to reproductive care and clinic defense – I’m grateful to my chief-co-sponsors on these measures, @CDRosa @AldMattMartin and @ChiAlderwoman, for working with me and all the advocacy groups who helped us think through the first steps to create meaningful and comprehensive legislation to protect bodily autonomy in our city.”  

Ald. Gilbert Villegas (36) tweeted “Today I voted to keep the camera speed limits at 6mph. The fact that peoples lives are being saved means they are working. However we have to ensure that we are using the proceeds from these cameras to help invest in our infrastructure. If Chicago wants to continue to be a World Class City, we need to take into account the micro mobility options that are available to the residents of Chicago and invest in safe roads, bike lanes, etc.”  

Ald. Andre Vasquez (40) tweeted “I want to commend all of the Chicago Cyclist and #SafeStreets groups for their organizing this weekend and into the City Council meeting. Once we knew the mission, they got to mobilizing and persuading. This win is yours - there are plenty of lives that will be saved.”  

Ald. Matt Martin (47) tweeted “I believe government works best when campaigns are funded by ordinary people — not just a few monied interests. That’s why today I am proud to introduce an ordinance that would establish publicly financed elections in Chicago.”
