Ward Reports September 30, 2021

Ald. Daniel La Spata (1) released a statement saying he was "disheartened by some of the baseless rhetoric that continues to be perpetuated to our constituents" about the causes of crime during a series of community meetings called to discuss a rise in carjackings.

Ald. George Cardenas (12) shared a Crain's article about political ramifications of the Bears move and tweeted, "A couple of observations here. First, the land is a great buy from a business standpoint notwithstanding the Bears. So with that, it’s a land deal plain a simple. To get to a stadium it’s like Chicago trying to get a casino. You do and you don’t."

Ald. Raymond Lopez (15) tweeted “Anyone have the over/under on when quorum will be achieved today at Budget Committee?” 

Ald. Byron Sigcho-Lopez (25) shared a statement on the Illinois Supreme Court agreeing to take up an appeal of his complaint against his predecessor Danny Solis for using campaign funds to pay legal fees.

Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa (35) tweeted “Let the Bears help the good people of Arlington Heights, just like the Fire once helped Bridgeview. Our Museum Campus / South Loop will be fine without the Bears. Surrounding area does not live or die by the Bears. Soldier Field will get plenty of use with concerts and the Fire.” 

Ald. Gilbert Villegas (36) tweeted “This is hilarious. IT Department doesn’t even have a Twitter account. Maybe they have a MySpace page…”  

Ald. Andre Vasquez (40) tweeted about Wednesday’s budget hearings and wrote “Day 2 of meetings starting over an hour late because we don’t have virtual options!” 

Ald. Matt Martin (47) tweeted information about a budget town hall scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Oct. 6 and wrote, “Learn about Chicago's 2022 budget proposal (which includes a $2B investment of federal pandemic relief funds) at our upcoming budget town hall.”
