We were so happy to vaccinate nearly 600 people at Ridgewood High School today! From factory workers to high school juniors, every vaccination makes our community safer.

Jewel-Osco and their hardworking nurses provided the Pfizer shots, and the Norridge and Harwood Heights governments worked hard to get the word out. Thank you to Ridgewood High School, Union Ridge, Norridge-Harwood Heights Rotary, and Kiwanis Club - Norridge/Harwood Heights for providing volunteer power, and RoccoVino's for lunch (even their pizza delivery guy got a vaccine).

Here is a view into our first 100 days in the Illinois House with our new leadership, Emanuel Chris Welch. The change is felt deeply and I often can’t believe it’s only been 100 days. 

Today marks 100 days since House Speaker Emanuel “Chris” Welch was sworn in to serve as Illinois’ first Black Speaker of the House. In just under four months, Speaker Welch has worked tirelessly to ensure his promises to address our state’s toughest issues are being kept.

Working people with intellectual and developmental disabilities who live in group homes should have the right to keep the money they earn. Right now, they are required to surrender a large portion of their earnings to the home providers, to subsidize the state’s low reimbursement rates. HB 292 will end this unfair practice, which creates a disincentive for these residents to find jobs and earn wages.

A giant step forward for the Illinois House!

I was proud to co-sponsor HB 642, which the House just passed unanimously. This bill will put a 10-year term limit on General Assembly leadership, including the Speaker of the House.

No one should hold power over the legislature for decades on end. This is a good day for democracy in Illinois.

Our bill to allow students with disabilities to graduate high school with their peers instead of exiting abruptly on their 22nd birthday has passed the House floor! Big thank-you to Rep Hurley for leading this charge. Thinking of Vaughn High School in Portage Park and ALL the young people and families in Illinois who will benefit from this overdue law change. Onward to the Senate and onward to everything else we must do to build a bridge over our cliff of support for young people with disabilities.

State Representative Lindsey LaPointe

District Office: 6315 N. Milwaukee Ave. Chicago, 60646

District Number: (773) 647 - 1174

I'm proud to represent you and your family as the new State Representative for the 19th District in the Illinois House. I am a social worker by training and at heart, and I’ve spent recent years in public policy, state government, and community work.

I am originally from Maine where my mom was a social worker and my dad worked in politics. The values they instilled in me - like compassion, service, and using our short time on earth to improve our communities – are so core to who I am that I don’t know any other way to be. My mom worked hard running a single-parent household during my teenage years and she passed away from cancer two weeks after I graduated college, plunging me into adulthood at 22. I was devastated, but awed by her support network and her impact on the world. At my mom’s service, a woman named Tracy spontaneously spoke. She was a former foster care client from my mom’s social work days in the 80s and she spoke of the life-changing impact my mom’s compassion had on her. Through my grief, sitting at my mom’s service at age 22, I was floored and forever changed by this stranger’s words. From that day forward, I have seen every moment as an opportunity to make someone’s life better and to improve our communities – through social work, changing laws, and community building. Soon after that, I started my first post-college job as a counselor for kids with special needs. Fifteen years later I’m here in the 19th District, still driven by those same values of compassion and service.

Just a reminder: One more time!! NWside Chicago peeps! Please join us in supporting one of our favorite places to eat: Manny's Deli. 4th generation, family owned business working hard to stay open WITHOUT laying off staff. PLEASE HELP THEM OUT! Order online for pick up AT OUR HOUSE in Norwood Park (5457 North Nordica)! Monday, October 19, 2020 4:30-5:00 p.m.
Good to meet you this weekend! Thanks for visiting our block and introducing yourself to the neighborhood!
Thank you Lindsey for your support of Manny's Deli. Thanks to those who ordered. We are going to do this again next month so keep watching this page! https://www.facebook.com/113514638682869/posts/3664425623591735/
Due to the rain forecast for tomorrow evening, Movies Under The Stars has been rescheduled to our rain date, THIS SATURDAY, August 29th!! See you @ sunset on the Schurz Great Lawn! https://www.facebook.com/events/356141132070141/
2 Questions for my lovely State Rep & team - 1) Via your networks -- Are you aware of a local agency, refugee assistance group, neighborhood family in need ... that could use some gently used baby gear?? (stroller, Pack 'n Play, etc.) 2) Do you happen to know of any free Community Shredding Events this fall ?? I have the.papers! 😉
It is the top post on Mr Plummer’s public Facebook pag. Apparently, he’s not the only colleague of yours saying this. Probably should be addressed to the constituents as to exactly what this is.... And thank you, my family an I are well. I hope you and yours are too.
I am a bit confused. Can you explain what Jason Plummer is talking about then and what exactly was Bill 357? A lot of your constituents think that you all voted for a pay raise for yourselves. Jason Plummer is a colleague, correct?
Did you really vote “yes” to give yourself a pay increase during a pandemic when millions of people are out of work and while Illinois is seeking a bailout from the feds? Can you explain your reasoning behind this please?
Thank-you for your timely updates on the pandemic and all that entails. I observe you working very hard for your potential constituents. That is good to see especially at this time. For those of you who are paying attention, remember this when it is time to vote.Here is someone who cares about the people. That is the character trait we need desperately in our leadership. Thank-you Lindsey and thank-you to your staff.
Hello, I am wondering where Representative LaPointe stands on HB4870. Thank you- IL voter
Thank you for coming out tonight Lindsey. It was nice to meet you.
It was great meeting you on Friday evening. I'm happy that our Representative actually visits their constituents to introduce themselves and ask if there are things we are concerned about. Knowing this, and your commitment to the community, you have my vote. Thanks so much, and keep up the good work. You got this! Mondragon Family.
