Ward Reports

  • Ald. Proco Joe Moreno (1) says he’s proud to cosponsor the anti-Trump resolution that would revoke the Trump Plaza honorary street sign. “While this is not the most important action we took today during our City Council meeting, we will not honor public figures who espouse hate nor tolerate their damaging and hateful language and bigotry.”
  • Ald. Brian Hopkins (2) posted some headache-inducing Jane Byrne Interchange updates.
  • Ald. Pat Dowell (3) invited people to celebrate the opening of the new Hadiya Pendleton Park at 43rd and Calumet this Saturday. “This is the 3rd Ward’s newest playground name after the young woman whose tragic death opened the nation’s eyes and sparked action to address gun violence in our communities.” She also shared pics from the new 10,000 seat venue for the DePaul Blue Demons and McCormick Place conventions.
  • Ald. Sophia King (4) shared an album from the 4th Ward’s Senior Ball, which Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle attended. 
  • Ald. Leslie Hairston (5) shared her full statement enumerating her issues with the police reform ordinance approved yesterday: “This was our chance to get it right the first time, Chicago, before the U.S. Department of Justice tells us to start over again. Such an edict will cost us time and precious money. Obviously, Chicago isn’t ready for reform. Sadly, we prove it time and time again.”
  • Ald. Roderick Sawyer (6) is moving offices and getting a new website. 
  • Ald. Greg Mitchell (7) posted pics from his fall town hall meetings. 
  • Ald. Carlos Ramirez Rosa (35) tweeted: “Movement for CPAC doesnt end today, it grows stronger. I will continue to fight for democratically elected CPAC, community control of police.”
  • Ald. Brendan Reilly (42) stayed on message yesterday: tweeting about Trump.
  • Ald. Ameya Pawar (47) congratulated Cook County Commissioners Bridget Gainer and Chuy Garcia for passage of paid sick leave: “400k county neighbors will now have a baseline of decency.”
