Ald. Daniel La Spata (1) tweeted in a multi-tweet thread tweeted “Today I voted no on the 2023 Budget for the many promises it breaks to 1st Ward residents and residents of the City.”
Ald. Raymond Lopez (15) tweeted “Nearly all depts have double-digit vacancy %’s. This forces taxpayers to pay for services @chicagosmayor has no intention of providing. With so many empty promises from 2022 budget left unfulfilled, I have no faith in her ability to executive anything in FY2023.”
Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa (35) tweeted “Mayor Lightfoot is now speaking after the 32 to 18 passage of her 2023 budget proposal. This budget was her last opportunity to keep key 2019 campaign promises. She's failed to keep them, yet she's now taking a victory lap. Incredible.”
Ald. Andre Vasquez (40) shared a two-page statement on his budget vote and tweeted “TLDR: I’m a no.”
Ald. Timmy Knudsen (43) in a thread tweeted “Today we passed the 2023 Chicago City Budget which included massive investment in public safety, an advance pay-down of City’s pension funds, prioritization of mental health (to citizens, workers and the police), created an Office of Climate and Environmental Equity... funded 1200 units of rapid rehousing for the fight against homelessness and much more. All with NO property tax increase.”
Ald. Maria Hadden (49) tweeted “Tomorrow, voters can push through an update to the Illinois constitution. The addition of the Workers' Rights Amendment will ensure that every Illinoisan has the right to join together with other workers to negotiate better pay, improved benefits, and safe working conditions.”
