Ward Reports July 29, 2022

Ald. Sophia King (4) wrote in her latest newsletter, “As July comes to an end, we'd like to acknowledge disability pride month, which occurs every July to commemorate the passing of the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in July 1990. We recognize the heritage, disability culture, the unique experiences of the disabled community, and the positive impact and contributions they have on society.”  

Ald. Raymond Lopez (15) tweeted, “I have hosted Ward Night twice a week my entire aldermanic tenure. I never know how I’ll be asked to help someone. Potholes or rat issues? Sure thing. Out street lights or tree trim? No problem. An errant rooster walking around the block? Thanks to @ChicagoACC we got you covered!”  

Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa (35) tweeted, “I look forward to working with my colleagues – @RossanaFor33, @AldMattMartin, and @ChiAlderwoman, the administration, and community organizations to codify and build upon these protections when we pass the Chicago Bodily Autonomy Sanctuary Ordinance later on this year.”  

Ald. Gilbert Villegas (36) tweeted, “Grateful to be at the @leagueofcities Board of Directors meeting in @CityofAtlanta to discuss important issues plaguing our cities. Listening to our CEO @ceanthony50 and our NLC President @ucmayorvince speak on strategies for municipalities to move them forward.”  

Ald. Matt Martin (47) shared a Block Club article about his public election funding ordinance and tweeted, “Elections shouldn't be up for sale to the highest bidder.”  

Ald. Maria Hadden (49) tweeted, “This month’s On the Map features one of our favorite places in the Ward @TheNew400. You probably already know that the New 400 is a super cool date night spot, oh and that they have fabulous popcorn and cocktails, of course.”
