Ward Reports June 22, 2021

Ald. Brian Hopkins (2) in his latest newsletter promoted “Meanwhile,” a new public space set to open next to Lincoln Yards’ Fleet Fields on July 15. The space will feature three new basketball courts, a performance space and a “designated area” for food, drinks and “small shop operators.” 

 Ald. Raymond Lopez (15) tweeted “I’m outraged by the fatal shooting following the Puerto Rican People’s Day Parade. We are transitioning from a city of neighborhoods celebrating our ethnic pride to a city of war zones grieving our weekly dead. It’s not someone else’s problem. It must stop!” 

Ald. Michael Scott (24) tweeted a link to a “simplified online tool which will allow families not automatically enrolled in the program to receive the Child Tax Credit.” 

Ald. Matt Martin (47) tweeted that this is the final week for donations to his ward office’s youth bike donation drive. “We've already received 40 donations, but hoping for a few more to make sure all of the youth who requested bikes can receive one!” 

Ald. Maria Hadden (49) in a tweet thanked Walmart for partnering with her and other aldermanic offices “to host a northside vaccine event. The second dose event was at Warren Park last Sunday, where over 150 people received their Pfizer vaccine!” 

Ald. Debra Silverstein (50) tweeted “We lost a major voice in the fight against bigotry and hatred with the passing of Fritzie Fritzshall, president of the Illinois Holocaust Museum. A Holocaust Survivor, she overcame the atrocities of Auschwitz and went on to dedicate her life to making this world a better place.”
