I hope you've all had a wonderful holiday. Reflecting on the past year for this, my 100th constituent newsletter since being elected in 2014, it's clear we've accomplished a great deal. By working together to transform ideas into action, we have strengthened our diverse community with more direct democratic involvement than ever before. We've welcomed new residents, businesses and redevelopment projects. We've made our neighborhood safer with the installation of bright street lighting and crosswalk upgrades. And the year ahead will bring a slew of capital improvement projects.
Thank you for all you do to make the 15th Ward a great place to live and work. I'm looking forward to an exciting New Year!
