Alderwoman Smith, Your ward is where Pocket Puppies is located. I am writing you to urge you to investigate this business. There is concern that they are sourcing their puppies from puppy mills which is a violation of Chicago's Companion Animal and Consumer Protection Ordinance. Please enforce the law. Thank you so much.

Coronavirus: What You Need to know READ MORE

Pandemic What if you thought of it as the Jews consider the Sabbath— the most sacred of times? Cease from travel. Cease from buying and selling. Give up, just for now, on trying to make the world different than it is. Sing. Pray. Touch only those to whom you commit your life. Center down. And when your body has become still, reach out with your heart. Know that we are connected in ways that are terrifying and beautiful. (You could hardly deny it now.) Know that our lives are in one another’s hands. (Surely, that has come clear.) Do not reach out your hands. Reach out your heart. Reach out your words. Reach out all the tendrils of compassion that move, invisibly, where we cannot touch. Promise this world your love-- for better or for worse, in sickness and in health, so long as we all shall live. ~ Lynn Ungar 3/11/20 The Rev. Dr. Lynn Ungar is minister for lifespan learning and editor of Quest for the Unitarian Universalist Church of the Larger Fellowship

Aldermen relied on a study to approve $1.3 billion for Sterling Bay’s Lincoln Yards. Turns out that Sterling Bay hired the consultant who wrote it.

It was represented to us that it was the city’s study. It’s been referred to as the city’s report, that seems misleading to me. https://www.chicagotribune.com/investigations/ct-lincoln-yards-tif-report-sterling-bay-20200218-v56fevqkibffhfekl5r2zdxw6a-story.html READ MORE

Hello. I need assistance following up on 2 complaints to 311 this month that all of the street lights on Sheffield from (and including) the intersection at Webster to Fullerton were out. The calls were made on Jan. 9 and Jan. 19. A search of the City's 311 site by key words, and the SR # for Jan. 19th's report, did not produce any results. A search using the tinyurl site texted to me by the City sent me to a report 12 months ago regarding lights on South Aberdeen. Those 2 blocks were very dark, and there is a lot of vehicle & foot traffic on them due to the nearby Fullerton L stop, Whole Foods, student activities around numerous DePaul facilities, & bars & restaurants on Webster. BTW, I have reported the outages on the Lincoln Park crime watch Fb page, & would be happy to update the posts to report the situation has been resolved. I'm also concerned that the 311 data base doesn't seem to be reliable. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

It was an immense honor to witness this historic moment alongside my colleagues and our new mayor. Mayor Lightfoot has signed an executive order restricting Aldermanic prerogative; however, as Mayor Lightfoot noted, “This is the start, not the end, of a series of good government ethics reforms we’ll be bringing to the city.” I am proud to serve Chicago as the new Chairman of the Committee on Ethics and Good Governance. We have a lot of work to do, and I’m ready to get started 💪🏽 . . . #chicago #chicagopolitics #chicagopolitician #chicagoalderman #lorilightfoot #lorilightfootformayor #chicagoreform #politicalreform #goodgovernance #michelesmith #instachicago #summertimechi #downtownchicago READ MORE

🏆🏈⚽️A New Field for Lincoln Park High School It is gratifying to announce that the Chicago Public Schools and the Chicago Park District have an initial plan for a new turf field for Lincoln Park High School football, soccer and other field sports. The new field will be located just east of the Diversey Driving Range. The preliminary plan, shown above, features a full sized field, bleachers and easy access to parking at the existing lot. Existing restroom facilities are near the adjacent driving range. CPS will increase the high school bus budget to ensure that athletes can readily get to the field. In addition to Lincoln Park High School sports, the field will also be available to the community in general at all other times. This is part of a larger project which includes fixing drainage in adjoining areas of Lincoln Park, and adding naturalized areas near the Barry Street underpass. We will be coordinating meetings with Lincoln Park High School sports and the Park District to ensure that the field meets the needs of our students. Construction of the field will begin as soon as plans are finalized, with the goal of opening for fall athletics. Until then, our teams will continue to use the Near North Field at North and Larrabee for practice. This culminated a multi-year effort to find a location and resources to build a field since there is no more available land in the 43rd Ward to build recreational facilities. Thanks to CPS, the Park District and the Mayor's Office for working together to help us win this for the high school and the community. A very special thanks to our neighboring Alderman Tom Tunney (44th), in whose Ward this field will be located, for supporting our vision - and understanding that our students and neighborhood athletes need space to play. We are very excited to announce this new era for the Lincoln Park Lions football, soccer and other field sports.

Reforms include: removing workmen’s comp from the Finance Committee, auditing it and all other Council Committees, changing City Council Rules and ethics ordinances so that an alderman with an interest in legislation can’t participate in consideration of that legislation at all, and other rules changes. Also will seek to make City Council Office of Financial Analysis completely independent. . . . . #Reform #Chicago #CityCouncil #Chicagoans #CityOfChicago #CityHall #Legislation #lincolnpark #independent #Analysis #inthe43rd #43rdWard #Ward43 #43Ward #oldtownchicago #oldtownchi #goldcoast #goldcoastchicago #lincolnparkneighborhood #LP READ MORE
