Ward Reports September 27, 2021

Ald. Sophia King (4) in her latest newsletter wrote “The senseless shooting death of a Simeon High School student on 52nd and Lake Park have many concerned about their safety in the Hyde Park/Kenwood area. And especially at Kenwood High School... As you may know a credible suspect thought to have started the threats was arrested. We want you to know that we take your safety seriously and are working closely with the various security stakeholders in the community to coordinate the appropriate deployment of resources to mitigate any security threat to students and the community at large.”  

Ald. Raymond Lopez (15) tweeted “Thanks to my residents for taking photos of this semi trying to navigate a residential street & damaging a light pole in the process.” 

Ald. Scott Waguespack (32) in a thread shared a photo from an event held on Saturday and wrote “[Openlands] sponsored a canoe paddling tour of the African American Heritage Water Trail on the Little Calumet River, leaving from soon to be rebuilt Beaubien launch, and [NeighborSpace] sponsored gardens” 

Ald. Rossana Rodriguez-Sanchez (33) shared a Block Club article about an Irving Park apartment proposal and tweeted, "I have the first ever Community Driven Zoning process in the 33rd Ward so that the power of zoning is used in a transparent and democratic way. I listen to community and make a decision based on that feedback. I don’t support this project."

Ald. Brendan Reilly (42) in his latest newsletter shared a link to an episode of John Kass’ and Jeff Carlin’s “The Chicago Way” podcast during which Reilly commented on the proposed 2022 budget, downtown crime and the ward remap. 

Ald. Matt Martin (47) in his latest newsletter wrote that during upcoming hearings on the city’s proposed 2022 budget, he “will pay close attention to the policy issues on which my office's recent town halls have focused: housing, the environment, child care, and domestic violence.” 

Ald. Maria Hadden (49) wrote in her latest newsletter that “for months, my colleagues in the Progressive Caucus and I have been championing legislation that calls for the allocation of ARPA funds to go towards housing assistance, homelessness prevention and resources, guaranteed basic income, mental health services, violence prevention, alternative crisis response, mental health resources, gender-based violence resources, and more. While I applaud the Mayor and her team for listening to these calls from City Council, she did not include us in those discussions.”
