Ald. Matt Martin (47) wrote in his latest newsletter that he plans on Thursday to host a "budget town hall," when he "will provide an overview of the Mayor’s proposed budget and spotlight a number of important areas about which we regularly hear from residents, including gender-based violence, affordable housing, and tree trimming and planting."

Ald. Scott Waguespack (32) shared WBEZ's reporting on the timeline of the Chicago Park District lifeguard sexual harassment scandal and tweeted, "The Meg Linehan quote "what is rotten, what needs to go?" re #NWSL is spot on. In Chicago Parks, it means they fire the investigator. #Backwards"

I never cease to be amazed by some of my colleagues." Cardenas replied in a tweet, writing, "Not sure what your are suggesting here but I suggest you get facts straight here. Call the principals! Smear campaigns are just that"
