Ald. Rossana Rodriguez-Sanchez (33) tweeted “Going to the University of PR meant that I was always engaged with social struggles.

Ald. Michele Smith (43) tweeted a statement on the most recent report on allegations of sexual harassment by Chicago Park District lifeguards writing, “to dismiss more than three decades of systemic and sustained abuse and harassment as simply something not being handled in a ‘timely manner,’ suggests a stunning level of tone deafness and a failure to accept responsibility as Chair by Ms. LaVelle.” Smith ended her statement writing, “Given today’s events, nothing had changed by opinion that Ms. Lavelle should resign.”
