Ward Reports October 14, 2021

Ald. Daniel La Spata (1) tweeted “I continue to work on the proposed 2022 Budget, and there is a City Council meeting regarding the 2022 Budget tomorrow (October 14, 2021) at 10am.” He also posted links to watch the council meeting and a “Weekly Budget recap on Friday.” 

Ald. Pat Dowell (3) posted notice in her latest newsletter of a series of park nature walk events hosted by the group Equiticity.  

Ald. Raymond Lopez (15) tweeted a screenshot of a report issued by Inspector General Joseph Ferguson and wrote, “$5.2 Million spent on committees. Time to trim the fat!”  

Ald. Rossana Rodriguez-Sanchez (33) shared a WTTW article on Inspector General Joseph Ferguson’s report on City Council committees and tweeted “The way City Council committees currently work makes it really hard to do good government work. I look forward to hearings on this report and to continue to push to reform our council and make it independent from the Mayor.” 

Ald. Andre Vasquez (40) tweeted, “So far we have 36 Alders (so far) in support of the resolution I am introducing [email protected] and @AldMattMartin this Thursday calling for investment in Ash Tree inoculations to #SaveYourAsh! Many thanks to the neighbor groups doing the work to uplift this! #Supermajority”  

Ald. Brendan Reilly (42) tweeted that the death of former Chicago Fraternal Order of Police president Dean Angelo is “Very sad news. We didn’t always agree, but Dean sure did love & respect his brothers & sisters in Blue. Rest In Peace and thank you for your service to Chicago.” 

Ald. James Cappleman (46) shared a Streetsblog column linking high rents in Chicago to restrictive zoning and a dearth of new construction and tweeted, “A more in depth article about the causes of higher rents. Another reason includes the Life Safety Ordinance that required building owners to meet an unfunded mandate, so they passed the costs onto their renters.” 

Ald. Maria Hadden (49) shared Ferguson’s report and tweeted, “Reform is needed in all parts of our City government. @ChicagoOIG Joe Ferguson opted to not seek another term because the good government, ethically based recommendations from his office are usually ignored or rebuffed by the City Council. Chicago deserves better.”  

Ald. Debra Silverstein (50) tweeted, “Dozens of you joined me yesterday to write postcards to USPS demanding better mail service. Thank you to everyone who came! A special thank you to Congresswoman @janschakowsky, Representative @DenyseStoneback, and @ChiAlderwoman Maria Hadden for lending your voice to our demands.”
