Priorities for the 42nd Ward

Alderman Reilly’s goal is to work in partnership with downtown residents, businesses and civic groups to work collaboratively to build a stronger Chicago

Alderman Reilly understands that we all have a common interest in promoting balanced, responsible growth; ensuring a well-managed and efficient public transportation system that meets our growing needs; improving public safety and reducing crime; strengthening our cultural and civic institutions; and protecting our air and water and preserving our parks and open spaces.

Public Safety

Although Alderman Reilly does not have the authority to direct CPD, he is committed to leveraging all available City resources to enhance public safety. Alderman Reilly has allocated significant portions of his Aldermanic Menu to fund the installation of Police Observation Cameras and License Plate Readers, which assist CPD detectives in catching criminals. Additionally, he uses his legislative powers to provide CPD with more tools to address crime and safety issues.
