Derek Chauvin was convicted yesterday for the murder of George Floyd. We all pray that George Floyd’s family takes some small measure of solace that justice is being served, and we hope that this will be a positive step forward in securing police accountability and fighting systemic racism. However, we know that the struggle is far from over. Our nation will never be truly free until citizens of all races, ethnicities, religions and creeds can live without fear of discrimination and persecution.

Please, continue to speak out and peacefully protest. Hug your children, embrace your neighbors, then go back to work for a more just and equitable society.

In accordance with a recommendation from the CDC and FDA, the City of Chicago has paused administering the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccine while federal health officials complete a review. This was done out of an abundance of caution due to six cases of a rare and severe type of blood clot in individuals who received the J&J vaccine in the United States, out of over 6.8 million doses given.

The Chicago State University mass vaccination site will switch to Pfizer vaccine for all appointments starting today. People who previously had J&J appointments can keep the appointment but will receive Pfizer instead, along with being scheduled for a second dose.

Certain other programs, such as the Protect Chicago Homebound program are paused for now, and individuals with appointments should have received notification about rescheduling.

I addressed the Committee on Health and Human Relations over Zoom today regarding a resolution I sponsored in January condemning U.S. Representative Mary Miller for her inflammatory and hateful comments regarding Adolf Hitler.

I personally lost relatives in the Holocaust, and I represent a Ward that suffered greatly from the Nazi atrocities. I can say with certainty that nothing Hitler did was right, no matter what Rep. Miller says.

The resolution passed the committee unanimously. It will be voted on by the full City Council later this month.

I was excited to tour the Chicago Mitzvah Campaign senior center at the corner of Pratt and California. The new 13,000 square-foot building is state of the art and will offer local Jewish seniors exciting daily programming, exercise, nutritious food, entertainment, and more.

Hello please help me I haven't received any mail over a week although receiving notice from the post every day my street is N christiana ave 60659
Hi Alderman Alderman Debra Silverstein, 50th Ward, can you please look into why the block of 2400 W Sherwin has not been plowed yet? I check the City’s plow tracker and it said a plow came through at 3:45am today. Here are some pictures. Thank you
Hi! Mail delivery in our area has become erratic . I know that there is not enough personnel and they are overwhelmed. We did not receive any mail this past week. Some areas of the city have been much more negatively affected. Not being able to reach the post office, I could not ask if it was possible for us to pick up our mail. Of course, it might not even be completely sorted. Do you have any input or suggestions? Just to clarify, I understand that the people working for the post office have been affected also by Covid! Difficult and frustrating situation for all. By the way, our mailman is wonderful! I hope he is healthy!
Do you have the new calendar for the recycling collection? I couldn't find anything listed on your website. Thanks.
Does anyone answer emails at the office anymore? Are there still Monday afternoon opportunities to discuss issues with Alderman Silverstein? I used to get prompt email responses, but I have not received a response to my last two emails.
It's better to give than receive. You can still donate a new, unwrapped toy at the same 18 parks sites where toys will be distributed on Sat., Dec. 19 from 10 am to 12 pm. For details, visit www.chicagoparkdistrict.com/toy-drive. #ChiParksToyDrive 🎁 Warren Park, 6601 N. Western Ave. is a Winter Wonderland Express, toy distribution location. [While supplies last]
Any updates on the 5-6 shots fired @2418 W Greenleaf Ave last night @ 10:57??
If you or someone you know is a Veteran and are experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness, this is a great resource. Of Color, Inc. provides job placement and connections to a variety of resources. Blessings!
I just wanted to thank you for breaking with the mayor, and voting against the property tax increase
my wife was robbed waiting for a cab near richmond and devon down the street from your office at 5p.m. sunday afternoon. instead of cutting funding for police how about more funding and more police on the beat
