39th Ward Updates
After the historic snowfall on February 15th and 16th, I was out in the 39th Ward with our hardworking crew and Ward Superintendent. Thank you to our Streets and Sanitation team, and workers from all City departments who ensured our streets were passable as quickly as possible. 
This Monday, March 1st, I welcomed Sauganash Elementary School students back to in-person learning. 
On Tuesday, March 2nd, I virtually participated in the Read Across America Day and read the book "One" by Kathryn Otoshi to an eager group of students.

I have been working with Congressman Mike Quigley's office to address US Postal Service (USPS) delivery issues throughout the 39th Ward. I recently wrote to Postmaster Wanda Prater to convey the gravity of the issue. You can read the letter below.
