Ald. Byron Sigcho-Lopez (25) released a statement saying, “Today’s federal indictment of Michael Madigan is especially significant for the 25th ward as new evidence has been revealed about the corruption and pay-to-play politics that my predecessor, Danny Solis, subjected our communities to for years. Solis’ name is mentioned 58 times in Madigan’s indictment, and time will surely tell the extent of their corruption. Corruption, which has a very real cost for Chicagoans. Here in the 25th ward, we are still cleaning up the mess Solis left behind.”
Ald. Scott Waguespack (32) and Ald. Michele Smith (43) issued a joint statement on the Madigan indictment, saying they are “grateful for the U.S. attorneys who have been building this case. We will continue to strengthen ethics laws and government transparency at City Hall, building on the laws we passed that prohibit government officials from lobbying City Hall for private interests.”
Ald. James Cappleman (46) tweeted, “Please register and submit your questions for our Affordable Housing Seminar on March 9. Featured speakers will be Rafael Leon, Chicago Metropolitan Housing Development Corp and Daniel Hertz, Policy Director for Chicago Dept. of Housing.”
Ald. Harry Osterman (48) tweeted, “This week, I joined 32 of my City Council colleagues in calling for @ChiSisterCities to suspend its relationship with Moscow, and I thank @WorldBizChicago for swiftly acting on this suspension.”
Cook County Comm. Sean Morrison (R-17) tweeted, “Scores have been indicted in Illinois! To the Federal Prosecutors; Thank you and more of this please! Attention maintenance department, we Need a Clean up in isle Illinois please.”
