Ward Reports July 7, 2021

Ald. Brian Hopkins (2) retweeted an epidemiologist who said the global COVID-19 “situation is getting worse, not better.”  

Ald. George Cardenas (12) shared a Crain's article about the Willis Tower's insurer suing the city over flood damage and tweeted, "Laughable. They are also trying to lower the assess value so they don’t pay their fair share of property taxes. More on that to come." 

Ald. Raymond Lopez (15) tweeted, “Safe assumption Lightfoot completely ignored my letter sent in June 2020 outlining strategies to reduce violence based on what worked in the 15th Ward. Again, her arrogance is costing Chicagoan’s their lives.”  

Ald. Michael Scott (24) shared a Sun-Times article about U.S. Sen. Tammy Duckworth endorsing Chicago Clerk Anna Valencia to be the next Illinois Secretary of State.  

Ald. Gilbert Villegas (36) tweeted, “I want to remind my colleagues of a relevant section of the ARPA guidelines that allows Chicago to spend some of its funding on violence prevention programs.”  

Ald. Andre Vasquez (40) tweeted, “After seeing the results of failed strategies this weekend, it’s time that we address the root causes of the violence. Investing in street outreach is crucial. We need less excuses and scapegoating rather than truly reimagining public safety.” 

Ald. Matt Martin (47) sent a newsletter reminding constituents that the deadline for high schoolers to apply to the summer Youth Organizing Summit is on Sunday. 

Ald. Debra Silverstein (50) encouraged residents to sign up for a property tax appeal workshop she plans to host alongside Cook County Assessor Fritz Kaegi at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
