Ald. Daniel La Spata (1) tweeted at the North Park University alumni Twitter account that “I’m having the wonderful moment of serving as alderman during Chicago budget hearings while fellow Viking and COPA interim chief administrator Andrea Kersten presents the work of her department. That’s significance and service right there!” 

Ald. Raymond Lopez (15) tweeted, ““independently elected & do not report to the mayor” #Amen” 

Ald. Rossana Rodriguez-Sanchez (33) tweeted, “One of my colleagues doesn’t understand structural racism so we are discussing it at a CDPH budget hearing... He expressed a lot of outrage at the existence of structural racism. He wasn’t aware of it and it just came to his attention that it’s a thing. He demands that it stops right now.”  

Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa (35) tweeted, “City Council's COVID seating arrangement has given me a full view of Council Chambers, and I can now say: man, this room is ugly. Chambers would be well served by wall-to-ceiling murals on either side of the rostrum. Realist murals depicting the history and grandeur of our city.”
