Ward Reports September 29, 2021

Ald. Matt O’Shea (19) in his latest newsletter wrote that his ward is scheduled on Wednesday to “host a no-contact donation drive benefitting the Maple Morgan Park Food Pantry (11030 S. Longwood Drive), 12:00 - 3:00 pm. The food pantry serves more than 1500 families per month from the communities of Beverly, Morgan Park, Mount Greenwood, Washington Heights, and West Pullman.”  

Ald. Rossana Rodriguez-Sanchez (33) tweeted “I’ll keep talking about this in hopes that we can take this conversation seriously. White supremacy, systemic racism and exclusion are at the root of the issue of violence. If we want it to end we have to commit to dismantling white supremacist structures and fight for equity.”  

Ald. Andre Vasquez (40) tweeted a video from the council chamber Tuesday morning during a delay in the beginning of budget hearings due to a lack of quorum and wrote “Here’s what happens when you don’t provide virtual options at Government meetings.” 

Ald. Matt Martin (47) shared a Time article on ranked-choice voting and tweeted “We’re hearing from the Board of Elections during budget hearings today. If Chicago implemented ranked choice voting, it could save the city money, save voters’ time, and make our elections more fair.” 

Ald. Maria Hadden (49) tweeted “Our office is partnering with State Senator [Mike] Simmons to host a donation drive to create welcome kits for Afghan refugees. Items can be dropped off at State Senator Simmons's office at 5533 N. Broadway from 9 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday.”
