Ward Reports October 26, 2022

Ald. Daniel La Spata (1) tweeted “Today I was proud to support @AldReilly's Resolution to provide more transparency and notice for ordinances in City Council Committees. You deserve a government that provides ordinances with time to review, as much as Aldermen deserve that time to make more informed votes.”  

Ald. Brian Hopkins (2) tweeted “this Rules Committee vote was a vote against transparency, good government, and public access. The League of Women Voters and @BetterGov tried their best, but in Chicago it’s hard to defeat the Machine.”  

Ald. Sophia King (4) tweeted “Tomorrow, join the Lakeside Alliance for a virtual outreach meeting for Chambers of Commerce and Contractor Associations to learn more about current and upcoming opportunities for businesses on the Obama Presidential Center.”  

Ald. Raymond Lopez (15) tweeted “The mayor uses direct introductions to avoid having her items run the aldermanic gauntlet. That being the case: any mayor should, at minimum, be required to file the wording of any legislation being introduced this way so the public can read it in advance of consideration.”  

Ald. Andre Vasquez (40) tweeted “It is a shame that the resolution @AldReilly introduced which would bring more transparency to the public regarding introductions was voted down by our colleagues. I am proud to have voted in support and stand with good government groups like @Leagueofwomenv1@BetterGov.”  

Ald. Brendan Reilly (42) tweeted “Yeah, you can’t abstain in votes if present. And after the Rules Chair worried so much during the hearing ‘about there being serious consequences for violating Council Rules,’ it was all shoulder shrugs when the Council Rules were broken in, of all places, Rules Committee today.”  

Ald. Timmy Knudsen (43) tweeted “We must speak out and band together in the face of rising anti-semitism and hate crimes against marginalized communities. Whether it’s race, religion, sexual orientation or gender identity, an attack on one of us is an attack on all of us. #HateWontWin”
