Ward Reports November 1, 2021

Ald. Pat Dowell (3) tweeted, “Thanks to the generosity of Black Men United, Proviso Leyden Council for Community Action, Chicago Football Classic and Christmas in the Wards our community is hosting a food giveaway at Metcalfe Park tomorrow morning for needy families in our area.”  

Ald. Raymond Lopez (15) tweeted, “@aldnapolitano41 and I both introduced ordinances to hold parents accountable for their children. His was derailed by a socialist, mine by the head of the Black Caucus.” 

Ald. Silvana Tabares (23) wrote in her latest newsletter, “If you think the city council doesn’t deserve input on policies that impact labor rights and public safety, then the City Council chambers might as well stand silent as they did during the shutdown. I know the mayor would like that. I know some aldermen would like that. But some of us are ready to stand up. Some of us aren’t going away.” 

Ald. Rossana Rodriguez-Sanchez (33) quote-tweeted Lopez’s tweet and wrote, “And every time similar backwards measures that focus on punishing the poor instead of addressing root causes are introduced we will fight them with every tool we have.”  

Ald. Gilbert Villegas (36) tweeted, “Our inaugural 36th Ward Trunk or Treat event was a huge success! Thank you to Rep. EvaDina Delgado and Dignity Montclare Funeral Home for co-hosting.” 

Ald. Andre Vasquez (40) quote-tweeted Lopez’s tweet and wrote, “As the socialist being referred to in this tweet, I will proudly stand with poor and working families who are just trying to survive in a capitalist society over draconian, repressive, cynical strategies that don’t solve the problem. #anydayoftheweek #twiceonSundays” 

Ald. Matt Martin (47) wrote in his latest newsletter that “approaching this budget, my office and I centered the stories of scores of neighbors who have struggled throughout the pandemic, dealing with issues from record unemployment and unstable housing to the lack of childcare and mental health challenges. I am proud to say that the budget includes many of the priorities that my office has been advocating for based on those experiences.”
