39th Ward Newsletter
March 15, 2021

Dear Neighbor,

I will be hosting a 39th Ward Community Safety Town Hall on Tuesday, March 23rd at 6:30 p.m. Please sign up to attend using this link or the link below. The surge in violence our ward has seen in the past week is unacceptable. Last week, I requested additional officers and resources from Chicago Police Superintendent Brown and Mayor Lightfoot. On Friday night, additional officers were deployed to the 39th Ward and will remain until further notice. 

Recently, I sent a letter to Chicago Postmaster Wanda Prater outlining the issues our ward has been experiencing with mail delivery. Following the letter, Postmaster Prater’s Office responded and assured my office they are working through mail delivery issues. Please submit mail delivery complaints here. We continue tracking missed and delayed delivery and share them directly with the Chicago Postmaster. 

COVID-19 vaccine appointments are still available for Seniors 65 and older who are Chicago residents at the United Center. If you are 65 and older, please register by calling 312.746.4835. Residents who are 1a, 1b, or have underlying conditions are also eligible and can register for an appointment online at Zocdoc.com/vaccine

The United Center mass vaccination site is located at 1724 W. Madison. Onsite parking is available, and a drive-thru option will be available later this month.

While we continue making progress in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, we must all keep wearing masks, watch our distance, and wash our hands to keep each other safe. 

The 39th Ward Public Service Office is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. While the office is open for walk-ins, appointments are encouraged. You can schedule an appointment by calling or emailing our office. Should you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact us at 773.736.5594 or via email at Ward39@CityOfChicago.org.

Very truly yours,


Alderman Samantha Nugent
