Lightfoot said she didn’t want a rubber-stamp City Council — and aldermen are taking her at her word, floor leader says

Harris’ aunt and role model was the Council’s beloved former Budget Committee Chairman Lorraine Dixon (8th), who died of breast cancer in 2001 at age 51.

On Thursday, Harris talked about the invaluable political and life lesson she learned from Dixon that might help Lightfoot improve her strained relationship with the Council.

“She took the high road in life. The lesson for all of us is, take the high road. To call in a great phrase that I love, Michelle Obama said, ‘When they go low, you go high,’” Harris said.

"I don’t see it as a rebellion…I see aldermen being much more aggressive about what they want, how they want it and when they can get it," said Ald. Michelle Harris (8th).

GIVEAWAY PROVIDES COMMUNITY WITH MUCH NEEDED GOODS

BY TIA CAROL JONES
“Have you ever seen anything like this in your life,” asked Larry Huggins, founder of Christmas in the Wards, while people set up for the Burnside Giveaway.
In one section of Harold Washington Elementary School’s parking lot people stacked diapers on a table, while other people unwrapped mini refrigerators. In another section, a forklift unloaded a large truck. In another section someone fried fish.
The Burnside Giveaway was presented by 8th Ward Alderman Michelle Harris, along with Christmas in the Wards, Black Men United, Proviso Leyden Council for Community Action, 4th District Cook County Commission Stanley Moore and 17th District State Senator Elgie Sims. The event took place at Harold Washington Elementary School, located at 9130 S. University.
There were 1,248 boxes of food, 150 refrigerators and 100 crock pots given away. Five eighth grade students from Harold Washington Elementary School received laptops as a reward for having 99 percent attendance. There also were 8,000 coats given away. The total was $112,478 in goods given away at the event.

“Have you ever seen anything like this in your life,” asked Larry Huggins, founder of Christmas in the Wards, while people set up for the Burnside Giveaway.

Red Light Camera Update:

Based on all your feedback I’ve decided NOT to move forward on the Red Light Camera recommendation at 95th and Stony Island. The majority of the feedback was against.. However, I do plan to continue to work with CDOT and IDOT on a traffic plan that may include Bump Outs at 95th as well as Speed Cameras along portions of Stony Island.

My goal is to get a handle on the rise in high speed crashes taking place on Stony Island.

I will keep everyone informed as we move forward. Thank you again for your feedback!
