The Chicago Board of Election Commissioners officially declared Ald. Chris Taliaferro the winner in the 29th Ward after a close runoff with CB Johnson. Members of the new 15th and 25th Police District Councils will officially begin their roles on Tuesday.
“There’s no versus them in this,” Deputy Chief Kevin Johnson said at a recent community forum. “We need your ideas, and we need your help. Whatever we can do to solve our problems, that’s what we need to do. We can’t point fingers anymore, we need to put on paper what we can do to make our community safer.”
Give an hour each Wednesday in June and July to stand with others in the community. There are four locations in the 25th Chicago Police District where residents, wearing red, will be meeting from 6 to 7 p.m. starting June 20th.
