This morning I joined SEIU Local 73 workers in their fight for a fair contract. These are the essential workers who sacrificed everything to get all of us & our families through the pandemic. They deserve better working conditions.

The pandemic has taken a large toll for families in our city and world. This reality is even more true for women. A recent study by UChicago Medicine indicates that women have seen an increase of mental health issues such as heightened anxiety and depression. Let's continue to look out for all women and families dealing with mental health.

#TBT – "Women belong in all places where decisions are being made.” - Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Two years ago, our city made history, electing three women of color to the top citywide positions. Representation matters, and we must continue to ensure that women and women of color have seats at the table at every level of government and in every industry. I’m proud to serve our great city as your City Clerk alongside Chicago Mayor's Office and Chicago Treasurer Melissa Conyears-Ervin. Thank you both for working tirelessly to ensure our city works for our residents and allows all Chicagoans to thrive, regardless of their zip code.

Through programs and initiatives like CityKey, Next Gen City Council, and our Status of Women & Girls Working Group, our team has worked hard to create meaningful and impactful change across our city. My team and I are looking forward to continuing the work it takes to ensure our local government is accessible and equitable for all.

Seeing rise in suicides among Black Cook County residents, city officials and mental health experts work on outreach

Suicide has heightened among black Chicagoans since the start of this pandemic. Black Chicagoans battling mental health issues are dealing with a ton of weighted stressors. Let's do our part to create more awareness for all families in our city and share resources with those in need of mental health assistance. Learn more on how we can fight mental health for black families in our city here https://bit.ly/3w7CzrU #mentalHealthAwarenessMonth

Data assessing high schoolers before the pandemic found Black youth were more likely to be considering or attempting suicide. A response is underway.

If the comptroller concludes that both of the above conditions are not met, the comptroller shall recommend to the city council that the zone be revoked or modified. A vote of the city council shall be required to revoke or modify a residential parking permit zone pursuant to this section." Chicago City Clerk This is 9-64-085 Review of existing residential parking permit. https://codelibrary.amlegal.com/.../chicago_il/0-0-0-2487418 The permit #2210 needs to go!
This is the public comment we submitted twice to the Committee on Pedestrian & Traffic Safety. Alderman Walter Burnett Jr told me to go back to Alderman Gardiner because "it's his decision". No justice here unless you know someone! My name is Barbara Murphy – a resident of the 45th ward A new parking permit was erected 9/1/2020 on 4400 N. LaCrosse Street just adjacent to where our building is. The permit was petitioned by former Alderman Pat Levar’s wife, Mary Ann Levar. The permit was placed against the results of the city survey indicating there is 61% available parking on Lacrosse. Alderman Jim Gardiner chose to use his discretion to override that decision and allow permit #2210 to be erected. Alderman Gardiner approved another permit at 4700 W Hutchinson for a friend against the city recommendation and 5800 N Mulligan for a friend, I believe you will have Mulligan on today’s agenda. Because of the permits, we now have insufficient parking available to our tenants and their visitors based on the no parking restrictions on Montrose Ave. which is adjacent to Lacrosse. The municipal code states we are eligible for a letter of exception due to the insufficient parking. The Alderman holds the power and the discretion to make the letter of exception available to our tenants just as he had the discretion to override the city's survey that indicated a permit was not needed at the 4400 Lacrosse street. We went to Alderman Gardiner in September with a solution for a problem and were met with abuse of power and retaliation. The very issues regarding Aldermanic privilege that Mayor Lightfoot swore to abolish. Our building is a diverse population and is designed to meet ADA guidelines and accessibility. We have two individuals in the building with physical disabilities that are now required to travel two blocks to park. In addition, when the tenant’s family or friends visit, they are required to park two blocks away on Lamon. This is frustrating as there is so much available parking on Lacrosse. I am disappointed it has come to this - that I am speaking to a committee when our problem can easily be remedied by Alderman Gardiner. And Unfortunately, every official I have contacted directed me right back to the Alderman. I have documented 29pages of communications to the Alderman’s office that have been ignored. I understand he is busy with Federal lawsuits as a defendant but this is blatant abuse of power in the form of dismissal. For the safety of our tenants and their families we need immediate action and resolution. Provide us with the letter of exception to park at permit #2210 for tenants at 4812 W. Montrose or remove the permit parking that never should have been placed. You may contact me, Barbara Murphy, for further details and to facilitate a solution. Thank you for this opportunity to speak here today and for listening to our concerns. Feel free to join our group to raise awareness! https://www.facebook.com/groups/permit2210
All the folks we have contacted and either been ignored or told to go back to the Alderman regarding a letter of exception for Permit #2210 Neither is OK – so you can decide how they handled it. Alderman Gardiner 8/28/2020 9/1/2020 9/3/2020 9/8/2020 9/10/2020 9/17/2020 10/2/2020 10/7/2020 10/8/2020 10/19/2020 10/23/2020 10/26/2020 11/3/2020 11/22/2020 11/23/2020 11/30/2020 State Rep Lindsay LaPointe (Actually spoke to him on our behalf but when they realized it was for us, stopped cooperating) 9/19/2020 10/9/2020 10/20/2020 10/26/2020 Alderperson Rosanne Rodriguez 10/26/2020 11/2/2020 State Rep Underwood 11/3/2020 State Rep Quigley 9/30/2020 10/14/2020 Mayor’s Office 10/1/2020 10/20/2020 10/26/2020 Chicago office of Ethics 10/2/202 10/6/2020 Better Government Association 10/10/2020 City Clerk’s Office 12/10/2020 11/1/2020 1/27/2021 3/15/2021 Spoke at the Committee on Pedestrian & Traffic Safety public comment 1/21/2021 Alderman Burnett – committee chair for Pedestrian & Traffic Safety 1/27/2021 2/5/2021 2/15/2021 Mayor’s Office of Disabilities 2/17/2021 3/14/2021 Mayors of People with disabilities 2/17/2021 3/14/2021 3/15/2021 Chicago Department of Law 3/15/2021 CDOT 3/15/2021
My husband and I own a 16-unit rental in the 45th ward. We built this building 2 years ago and were required by the City to have ADA units. As parents of a child with a physical and intellectual disability this was also important for us to provide for the community. We have been trying since September to get a letter of exception from Alderman Gardiner for permit parking #2210 at the 4400 block of Lacrosse. However, we have been met with retaliation and abuse of power. Our building at 4812 W Montrose Ave. is adjacent to Lacrosse and our tenants and their families now have no available parking other than 2 blocks away on Lamon due to restrictions on Montrose Ave. According to the municipal code 9-64-090, we are part of the buffer zone which means we should be able to access a permit. I have contacted the city Clerks office over 15X, Mayors office, MOPD, Office of Ethics, State Rep, LaPointe, State Rep Quigley, and more… Everyone sends me back to the Alderman’s Office. HOW DO WE GET THE EXCEPTION TO GET PERMITS!!!! https://www.facebook.com/groups/permit2210

DOES ANYONE WORK HERE? PLEASE CALL ME 773-812-1988
Where can I find info on the City Sticker Fees for someone who has moved into Chicago, IL from another state? I went to get a City Sticker, and was told that I had to pay a $60 late fee for not having a bill of sale on a car (The City Clerk website only says this is required for new cars; so I am not sure why I was charged that amount for an old vehicle/paid-off vehicle that is coming in from another state). I agreed to that fee, and was quoted a price of over $250 for a sticker that is only good until June 2021. When I asked what other fees were included with that, the clerk said that she 'didn't have that info'. So I asked, how much is the actual sticker, and she said that she 'could not answer that'. The receipt was not itemized for me to figure out what exactly I was being charged for.
Greetings, sent two emails this month to your office. No response still. Had received someone else's vehicle sticker at my home residence beginning in February. And the kicker is, such a person doesn't live here. Never did. Had asked for that "person's" name to be struck from off my address AND what do you want me to do with sticker please?
The new website will not recognize me or allow me to re-register or register with a new password. What can I do other than come to City Hall in person?
My dear, problem is all over in the world. Today I Was invited by the city court to settled land dispute between two (2) of my city residents.
I thank God for taking care of us. It is by His grace we are now some minutes old in 2021.
My clerk, i wish you happy new year.
