👋hello! Just wondering if you’re planning to engage with your constituents sooner than mid-October to discuss the recent events, some of which have occurred in your ward? I know there’s an event a month and a half from now, but also saw that Ward 32 is hosting a meeting Tuesday, which seems a bit more timely and responsive. Would love to hear what steps you’re taking as an alderman to advocate for city resource within the ward as well. Thanks!
As a constituent, I am so impressed by the work you and your staff are doing. The newsletter is full of useful information and most appreciated by me and I am sure many others.
Black Heroes Matter discussed DuSable Drive efforts in advance of possible 6/23 vote, calling the notion that renaming L*D to honor a Black man would hurt Chicago’s brand a "sad, racist argument... reflective of the very reason the name should be changed. Black is beautiful. DuSable Drive is beautiful… and marketable."
Any other 2nd Warders missing their black garbage "carts" AND blue recyle bins? Requested 4/15...emailed office 4 x; rec'd quick response 5/21 - still no carts/bins. This is a health hazard. We deserve concrete information. thank you
Hoping Alderman Hopkins will support this.
FYI:
In case you missed our Regular NNUP Monday 5/26 Monthly Meeting....

Sergeant Riga and Sergeant Schnek from the Chicago Police Department presented information about the CPD 2021 Strategic Plan. This Community Policing Plan is rolling out across districts in the city and one big take away is All CPD Officers will start to be trained as Community Policing Officers.

A Big Thank you to everyone who contributed community input at the CPD Community Conversations this past October and November, you'll see that input incorporated into the 18th District Plan.

CPD is looking for Community Ambassadors if interested please contact Sergeant Schnek at the 18th District CAPS office.

Thank you so much for holding the Covid Vaccination event today!! Very well organized and appreciated! 💕
Alderman Hopkins tells WGN he is also concerned about unauthorized gatherings. (St. Patrick's Day)

“It’s the unlicensed parties and underground events that are the cause for concern,” he said. “People are having their own parties, booking hotels and Airbnb sites. It has the potential to get out of control and we have to make sure that doesn’t happen.”

And yet Biden is sending COVID POSITIVE undocumented illegals to various locations in the US with no plans of quarantine or treatment? Sound counter productive to me.
On February 6th, a car jacking that ended in a crash at Dearborn and Schiller took out the North West stop sign. When will this be replaced? There is a pre-school here and leaves us with a very unsafe intersection. Thank you.
Feliz Navidad y un 2021 con sueños cumplidos le desea con afecto y gratitud la madre de Hugo Checo Silva.
Alderman Hopkins - do you know why is General Iron still operating? They were supposed to shut down today. Thanks.
