Early this morning a fire broke out on the 2400 block of Lincoln Ave. The Chicago Fire Department responded quickly and bravely to contain the fire.

It's with deep sadness that I share the news of the passing of Andrew "Drew" Price of Engine 55 who sustained critical injuries while responding to this morning's fire. He will live on through his friends and family, his fellow firefighters at Engine 55, and the entire Chicago Fire Department. I offer them my deepest condolences.

Greetings, 44th Ward Residents! As we gear up for Halloween, remember my office is here to assist with your block party plans. Amidst the fun, we're addressing the recent uptick in armed robberies by enhancing police enforcement and welcoming our new Police Superintendent, Larry Snelling, to bolster community safety. Last weekend's Kids Bike Parade was a hit, and coming up is the Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce's Oktoberfest event this weekend at 708 W Belmont. We continue to support new arrivals at District 19 police station and appreciate your ongoing contributions. Don’t miss out on the Shop for Schools initiative from Oct 4-6, where your purchases at select businesses will benefit local schools. Stay tuned for more community events like the Halloween Pup Crawl on Oct 21. Stay safe and engaged in our vibrant community!
