Ward Reports July 29, 2021

Ald. George Cardenas (12) tweeted “Democracy and Vaccines are the two incompatible? If there was any other threat the US would be united against a common foe. When Governments try to please everybody bad things happen.” 

Ald. Matt O’Shea (19) tweeted “A big thanks to Governor [JB] Pritzker, he signed HB 40 into law today at Southside Occupational Academy. This is a huge step in supporting our students with disabilities and their families.” 

Ald. Andre Vasquez (40) tweeted “When our Teachers, Staff, and Students need support, the #40thWard shows up!! Many thanks to @AnaLopezAlcan, Eva Padilla, and Debby Pope from @CTULocal1 for being outside of the Board of Ed, demanding that federal funds go to providing adequate school resources and staff needs!” 

Ald. Matt Martin (47) tweeted about a recent zoning decision he made in approving the parcel at 3244 N. Lincoln Ave. To be rezoned from B1-3 to B2-3 TOD “to allow for a 4-story building featuring commercial space fronting Lincoln and 7 rental units.”  

Ald. Debra Silverstein (50) tweeted “Police have made an arrest in connection with the rash of carjackings that have been plaguing our neighborhood. As a result, a juvenile has been charged with multiple counts of Vehicular Hijacking, as well as an Attempted Hijacking of two off-duty police officers in Edgewater.”  

Cook County Comm. Kevin Morrison (D-15) tweeted “One in four Cook County residents lacks access to high-speed Internet. That is completely unacceptable. We must ensure we invest American Rescue Plan Act dollars in expanding high-speed broadband to every Cook County household.” 

Cook County Comm. Bridget Degnen (D-12) tweeted “I fully support @Simone_Biles 

courageous decision to focus on her mental health. Nobody should be criticized for doing what is best for their health, physical or mental. Managing our mental health is a priority, I encourage everyone to make time for self care and reflection.”
