Ward Reports October 29, 2021

Ald. Raymond Lopez (15) tweeted “5,000 medical/religious exemptions applied for to city’s HR Department. Only a dozen employees reviewing each application manually. That means HR needs to review & decide roughly 80 applications a day, about 7 request daily per employee - all before the 12/31 vax deadline.” 

Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa (35) tweeted “TOMORROW: The 35th Ward office at 2934 N. Milwaukee will close at 12 PM on Friday, October 29th to staff Hermosa Halloween at Nixon Elementary (2121 N. Keeler). You are welcome to visit us at Nixon from 2pm to 6pm."  

Ald. Andre Vasquez (40) tweeted a video of the speech he gave from the council floor before voting on the 2022 budget.  

Ald. Tom Tunney (44) in his latest newsletter detailed his vote to approve the 2022 budget. “This was not a perfect budget and I had reservations in supporting it, my main objection being the modest property tax increase,” Tunney began. “Our city will be seeing a large influx of federal COVID relief funds this year, and I feel it is wrong to raise property taxes when there are federal funds that could prevent hiking taxes.” 

Ald. Matt Martin (47) tweeted “Proud this year's budget includes additional investment in our city's public mental health services. And now this Saturday, @ChiPublicHealth will be at our Health and Wellness Fair to share info on how to access those resources. Stop by Sulzer Library from 10 AM to 2 PM!”
