Ward Reports May 11, 2022

Ald. Daniel La Spata (1) tweeted of his “Water for All” ordinance, “Despite a majority of No votes, I regret nothing. Too many good ordinances wither on the vine and fade away. I refused to let that happen on issue as critical to our health and well-being as clean affordable water.”  

Ald. Raymond Lopez (15) tweeted, “Lightfoot’s “Summer of Joy” has begun w/ a five-person mass shooting in Back of the Yards. Chicago can’t continue to ignore the impact of generational gang violence.

Really burnishing our carbon-crushing commitment to our sustainability & emissions goals! All as we are told the City may face an $867 million budget shortfall this year. Makes sense.”
