Ward Reports May 17, 2022

Ald. Raymond Lopez (15) tweeted about the ward map ordinance that was approved on Monday, writing “Transparency was intentionally sidestepped by refusing to introduce this map in regular City Council meeting or committee meeting, where public participation & openness could have transpired. This map was only seen last week with most Chicagoans not having seen it.”  

Ald. Rossana Rodriguez-Sanchez (33) tweeted “This coming Thursday we will have a meeting of the Committee on Education and Child Development to discuss the recent budget cuts to schools across the city. Here’s the information on how to participate. We want to hear your voice, we want your questions and your feedback!”  

Ald. Michele Smith (43) tweeted a picture of the final vote count for the new ward map and wrote “the vote to allow the vote on the map to go forward. A victory for compromise.”  

Ald. Debra Silverstein (50) issued a statement on the passage of the new ward map, writing “The City Council met today to officially vote on new ward maps for Chicago. This is a process that happens every 10 years after the census. The new map is not perfect, but it represents hundreds of hours of collaboration between Council members and it avoids the financial burden of a referendum. I believe it is the best way forward for our city.”
