Ward Reports May 9, 2022

Ald. Pat Dowell (3) tweeted, “At the reopening of Sip and Savor at 78 East 47th Street in Bronzeville. Come have an expresso or a twisted cap and some vittles! Congrats to the extraordinary Trez Pugh, owner.”  

Ald. Raymond Lopez (15) tweeted, “Thank you to everyone that joined me for the 131st Annual Polish Constitution Day Parade. Great to stand alongside our Polish brethren as they continue to show the world what compassion & strength looks.”  

Ald. David Moore (17) tweeted, “When I talk to residents in the rural counties, and collar counties of our state they consistently say that they feel forgotten. Don't continue to elect people who were groomed by the establishment, elect grass root servants who mirror you.”  

Ald. Scott Waguespack (32) wrote in his latest newsletter, “The Mayor announced that the City has selected Bally’s Corporation to be the recipient of its sole casino license and the developer to create a world-class casino-resort and entertainment experience in Chicago on the site of the Tribune Publishing Center at Chicago and Halsted. You may read the full press release here. Many other factors were considered that led to the selection of Bally’s as the Mayor’s recommended partner on this historic development. The recommendation report will be available at chicago.gov/chicagocasino.”  

Ald. Brendan Reilly (42), wrote in his latest newsletter, “The vast majority of residents, 80%, are adamantly opposed to a casino opening in River North. I agree - the Tribune Publishing site is in an area of River North that is quiet and residential. It has a lot of traffic challenges that currently make it difficult to commute and traverse the area. It is not the appropriate place for a large entertainment venue.”  

Ald. James Cappleman (46) tweeted, “CTU is having an election on May 20. I won't tell teachers how to vote, but 3 years ago, some CTU teachers recruited students to assist them with stealing school desks and placing them in my front yard. Be an informed voter.”  

Ald. Matt Martin (47) wrote in his latest newsletter that he hosted “a visioning of the Ravenswood Industrial Corridor between Irving Park and Lawrence. We reviewed survey results in which respondents said they would like to see more taverns, restaurants, and coffee shops come to the corridor, and would like to see pedestrian improvements where Ravenswood intersects with Irving Park, Montrose, and Lawrence. You can watch a recording of the video here.”  

Ald. Harry Osterman (48) wrote in his latest newsletter, “Myself and other members of City Council will be reviewing and voting on this [casino] proposal. A casino in Chicago will bring in revenues for the City and will help stabilize the City’s pension funds. I welcome your feedback on this proposal.”
