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. Go Lions! . . . #GoLions #LPHS #lincolnparkhighschool #lincolnparkchicago #lincolnpark #chicagoland #chicago #CPS #NEWFIELD #LionsPride #lphslions #lincolnparkhigh #lionpride #lincolnparkarts #lincolnparkrealestate #lincolnparkcraftdistrict #ward43 #43rdWard #Schools #1school1community READ MORE
