00:12:57 WE ASSEMBLE THIS DAY TO LIGHT THE LIFE
00:12:58 OF ALDERMAN BERNARD STONE TO
00:13:08 BE PRESENTED TO HIS FAMILY AS A TONE OF
00:13:09 OUR APPRECIATION AND --
00:13:20 ESTEEM
00:13:21 >> ALDERMAN BURKE?
00:13:24 >> YOUR HONOR, I ASK THAT YOU HOLD THIS
00:13:25 FOR CONSIDERATION. YOUR
00:13:31 HONOR, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL IT IS REGRET
00:13:32 THAT I ANNOUNCE THE PASSING
00:13:45 OF ALDERMAN STONE. I AM PROUD TO SAY
00:13:46 THAT I SERVED ALONGSIDE BERNIE
00:13:53 FOR 38 YEARS IN THIS CITY COUNCIL, AND I
00:13:54 KNOW THAT EVERYONE WHO HAD
00:13:58 THE PLEASURE OF WORKING WITH HIM LEARNED
00:13:59 FROM HIS PROFOUND SENSE OF
00:14:03 COMMITMENT TO HIS CONSTITUENTS AND
00:14:04 INDEED TO THE PEOPLE OF THIS GREAT
00:14:13 METROPOLIS. BERNIE WAS A GREAT MAN IN
00:14:14 HIS GENERATION AND A WORLD WAR
00:14:18 II VETERAN. IN FACT HE WAS THE LAST
00:14:19 MEMBER OF THE CHICAGO CITY
00:14:22 COUNCIL TO HAVE SERVED IN THE ARMED
00:14:23 FORCES DURING WORLD WAR II. HE
00:14:28 WAS A PATRIOT AND A PROMINENT MEMBER OF
00:14:29 CHICAGO'S JEWISH COMMUNITY IN
00:14:35 WHICH HE TOOK SUCH GREAT PRIDE. BERNIE
00:14:36 DIDN'T MINCE WORDS.
00:14:44 CONGRESSMAN GUTIERREZ CAN AT TEST TO
00:14:45 THAT AND HE WAS LOYAL TO A
00:14:50 FAULT. IF YOU ARE HIS FRIEND, YOU ARE
00:14:51 HIS FRIEND UNTIL THE VERY END.
00:14:57 HE KNEW THE STATE LAW LIKE THE BACK OF
00:14:58 HIS HANDS AND HE WENT TO
00:15:03 PROTECT THE NEIGHBORHOODS OF THIS CITY
00:15:04 AND INSPIRED LEGISLATION TO
00:15:10 CONVERSIONS OF CONDOMINIUMS AND
00:15:11 MANDATING THAT PEOPLE RENTING
00:15:18 APARTMENTS WOULD BE ENTITLED TO A
00:15:19 COMFORTABLE TEMPERATURE OVER NIGHT
00:15:25 AND THE UNDERDOG IN THE TROUST SENSE OF
00:15:26 THE WORD. SO THIS MORNING,
00:15:31 PLEASED TO BE ABLE TO JOIN THE MAYOR AND
00:15:32 OTHER MEMBERS OF THE CITY
00:15:36 COUNCIL AND EXTEND TO BERNIE'S FAMILY
00:15:37 OUR SUPPORT AND OUR PRAYERS.
00:15:47 IT WAS A DIFFERENT TIME WHEN BERNIE
00:15:48 SERVED HERE. IT WAS MORE LIKE A
00:15:54 FAMILY IN THE CITY COUNCIL. HE AND
00:15:55 FREDDY ROADEY WERE INSEPARABLE
00:16:01 WITH THEIR WIVES THEY TRAVELED THE WORLD
00:16:02 AND ENJOYED ONE ANOTHER'S
00:16:10 COMPANY. I REMEMBER WHEN LOIS, BERNIE'S
00:16:11 WIFE TOOK ILL AND YOUR MOM
00:16:18 WAS IN THE HOSPITAL, AND THERE WAS A
00:16:19 LINE OF US WENT OVER AND DONATED
00:16:29 BLOOD TO LOIS WHEN SHE WAS SO VERY VERY
00:16:30 ILL. SO ON A CERTAIN SENSE I
00:16:34 FEEL THAT MY BLOOD RUNS IN THE STONE
00:16:35 FAMILY. WHAT A WONDERFUL MAN
00:16:42 YOUR DAD WAS. HOW GRACIOUS AND LOYAL AND
00:16:43 DETERMINED HE WAS. MAY HE
00:16:51 REST IN PEACE AND MAY NOW GOD GIVE HIM
00:16:52 THE REWARD OF ETERNAL LIFE.
00:16:58 THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT.
00:17:02 >> ALDERMAN SILVERSTEIN?
00:17:08 >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT, I STAND IN
00:17:09 ORDER OF THIS RESOLUTION.
00:17:12 ALDERMAN WAS IN THE WARD FOR 50 YEARS.
00:17:13 HE CARED ABOUT THE WARD AND
00:17:19 THE HISTORY OF CHICAGO AND HIS FAMILY.
00:17:20 MY HEART AND MY PRAYERS GO OUT
00:17:24 TO THE FAMILY. MY SYMPATHIES ARE WITH
00:17:25 YOU.
00:17:27 >> ALDERMAN SUAREZ?
00:17:29 >> MR. PRESIDENT, MEMBERS OF THE CITY
00:17:30 COUNCIL, I TOO RISE TO BE
00:17:34 ASSOCIATED WITH THIS RESOLUTION. THIS
00:17:35 RESOLUTION SPEAKS FOR ITSELF.
00:17:40 ALDERMAN STONE, IN MY OPINION WAS ONE OF
00:17:41 THE NICEST, KINDEST AND TRUE
00:17:50 PROFESSIONAL TO SERVE ON THE CITY
00:17:51 COUNCIL. IF YOU WERE BERNIE'S
00:17:54 FRIEND, YOU KNEW YOU WERE HIS FRIEND. HE
00:17:55 WOULD NEVER NEVER TURN HIS
00:18:00 BACK ON YOU. IT'S SAD TO SEE THAT
00:18:01 EVERYTHING HAS TO COME TO AN END.
00:18:04 BUT AS A FAMILY, YOU MUST BE VERY PROUD
00:18:05 OF YOUR FATHER, A GREAT MAN.
00:18:12 A GREAT LEADER. A MAN THAT BELIEVED IN
00:18:13 SERVING THE CITY OF CHICAGO
00:18:18 AND THIS COUNCIL AND THIS MAN-MADE SURE
00:18:19 THAT WHEN WE WERE IN ZONING
00:18:22 THIS WEREN'T MANY PEOPLE THAT COULD
00:18:23 STAND AND ARGUE ZONING CODE WHEN
00:18:28 BERNIE WAS ON THE FLOOR. ON BEHALF OF
00:18:29 MYSELF, MY FAMILY AND THE
00:18:33 MEMBERS OF THIS CITY COUNCIL, MY
00:18:34 SYMPATHIES.
00:18:45 >> ALDERMAN?
00:18:46 >> IT WAS A PLEASURE TO SERVE WITH YOUR
00:18:47 FATHER. AS A CONSTITUENT WE
00:18:53 SPOKE MANY TIMES AND I APPRECIATE YOUR
00:18:54 INPUT AND KNOWLEDGE ABOUT YOUR
00:18:58 FATHER'S HISTORY. A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T
00:18:59 REALIZE HOW MUCH A WEALTH OF
00:19:03 KNOWLEDGE HE WAS. ALDERMAN SUAREZ
00:19:04 MENTIONED ABOUT THE ZONING AND THE
00:19:07 ZONING CODE, BUT WHEN WE WERE IN HOUSING
00:19:08 COMMUNITY AND TALKING ABOUT
00:19:11 A PARTICULAR PROPERTY, YOUR FATHER NO
00:19:12 MATTER WHERE IT WAS IN THE CITY
00:19:16 COULD PULL OUT A WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE AND
00:19:17 HISTORY ABOUT A PARTICULAR
00:19:19 PROPERTY IN ANY PART OF THE CITY AND
00:19:20 WOULD START TALKING ABOUT THAT
00:19:23 LOT OR BUILDING OR THE HISTORY OF IT
00:19:24 GOING BACK DECADES. THAT WAS
00:19:30 ALWAYS INCREDIBLE FOR US AS NEW MEMBERS
00:19:31 OF THE COUNCIL WHEN I SERVED
00:19:33 WITH HIM TO HAVE THAT ABILITY TO KNOW
00:19:34 WHAT HISTORY OF CHICAGO WAS
00:19:38 BEHIND EVERYTHING THAT CAME UP, NOT JUST
00:19:39 IN THAT COMMITTEE BUT OTHER
00:19:42 THINGS THAT CAME ABOUT ON THE FLOOR. HE
00:19:43 NEVER PULLED ANY PUNCHES. HE
00:19:48 IS ALWAYS DIRECT AND HONEST WITH ME AND
00:19:49 MANY OF OUR NEW MEMBERS AND
00:19:55 LETTING US HOW THINGS WORK AND SHOULD
00:19:56 WORK OVER THE LAST DECADES. IT
00:20:01 WAS AN HONOR TO SERVE WITH HIM, MY
00:20:02 CONDOLENCES TO YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY
00:20:08 ON BEHALF OF THE 42ND WARD.
00:20:13 >> ALDERMAN MITTS?
00:20:15 >> THANK YOU, I TOO RISE IN SUPPORT OF
00:20:16 THIS RESOLUTION. I EXTEND MY
00:20:21 CONDOLENCES ON BEHALF OF THE 32ND WARD.
00:20:22 I REMEMBER COUNCILMAN STONE
00:20:31 AT CITY COUNCIL. WE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY
00:20:32 TO GO TO WASHINGTON D.C..
00:20:37 YES, MA'AM, HE GOT A NAME AND I HAVE GOT
00:20:38 TO TELL YOU IT WAS VERY
00:20:45 ENLIGHTENING. HE WAS A HAND SOME YOUNG
00:20:46 MAN BECAUSE HE PICKED UP A
00:20:49 YOUNG LADY. LADY OF THE NIGHT CAME UP TO
00:20:50 HIM.
00:20:53 >> WE HAVE CHILDREN HERE, EMMA. GO SLOW.
00:20:56 >> HIS NAME IS BIG DADDY. HE SAID, HEY,
00:20:57 BIG DADDY.
00:21:02 >> THIS IS A FAMILY-FRIENDLY CITY
00:21:03 COUNCIL.
00:21:06 >> HEY, BIG DADDY, HOW ABOUT ME AND YOU
00:21:07 GOING OUT? HE SAID THERE IS
00:21:14 NOTHING YOU CAN DO WITH ME. SHE SAID
00:21:15 IT'S OKAY. YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO
00:21:23 ANYTHING.
00:21:24 >> EMMA, LET'S LEAVE IT THERE.
00:21:25 >> I'M GOING TO LEAVE IT THERE.
00:21:31 >> ALDERMAN BURKE SAID HE WANTED TO REST
00:21:32 IN PEACE.
00:21:35 >>
00:21:36 [ LAUGHTER ]
00:21:37 >> HE TOLD ME HE WAS. THERE WAS A
00:21:38 RESOLUTION I WAS TRYING TO GET IN
00:21:41 ON THE SAGGY PANTS. HE SAYS EMMA, I SAID
00:21:42 I NEED YOUR SUPPORT. HE
00:21:50 SAYS, I DON'T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THOSE
00:21:51 PANTS HANGING DOWN. HE WAS VERY
00:21:57 DIRECT, VERY STRAIGHT FORWARD AND I
00:21:58 APPRECIATED HIM FOR THAT AS BEING
00:22:01 SENIOR ALDERMAN IN THE COUNCIL. HE GAVE
00:22:02 US LAUGHS AS WELL AS THE
00:22:06 WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE THAT HE HAD. SO ON
00:22:07 BEHALF OF THE 37TH WARD, WE
00:22:12 WILL TRULY MISS HIM AND I APPRECIATE YOU
00:22:13 ALL LENDING HIM TO US THIS
00:22:16 TIME SO WE CAN ENJOY AS WE WORK AT THE
00:22:17 SAME TIME. THANK YOU.
00:22:22 >> FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NEVER BEEN TO A
00:22:23 JEWISH FUNERAL, THOSE STORIES
00:22:29 ARE RESERVED FOR SHIVA, NOT CITY
00:22:30 COUNCIL.
00:22:35 ALDERMAN MOORE?
00:22:36 >> THANK YOU, I TOO RISE IN SUPPORT OF
00:22:37 THIS RESOLUTION. ALDERMAN
00:22:41 STONE WAS MY NEIGHBOR IN THE CITY
00:22:42 COUNCIL. ON MY LEFT. IT WAS THE
00:22:48 ONLY TIME HE WAS ON MY LEFT. ALSO WAS MY
00:22:49 NEIGHBOR BACK IN THE NORTH
00:22:58 SIDE OF CHICAGO ON THE 50TH WARD WHICH
00:22:59 SHARES A 49 WARD BORDER. WHEN
00:23:05 I GOT ELECTED TO CITY COUNCIL IN 1991,
00:23:06 ALDERMAN STONE HAD ALREADY
00:23:10 BEEN ON THE COUNCIL FOR 20 YEARS. FOR
00:23:11 THE NEXT 20 YEARS HE AND I SAT
00:23:16 HERE IN THE CORNER AND JOKED A LOT AND
00:23:17 BEMOANED THE FACT THAT FOR
00:23:21 WHATEVER REASON MAYOR DALY DIDN'T CALL
00:23:22 ON US AS WE RAISED OUR HAND.
00:23:29 THIS MAN A LITTLE BIT BETTER, BUT SOME
00:23:30 CHALLENGES AS WELL.
00:23:32 >> MAYBE IT'S ABOUT THE CORNER?
00:23:35 >> MAYBE WHO IS IN THE CORNER, I DON'T
00:23:36 KNOW. BUT HE WAS AN ABSOLUTE
00:23:41 DELIGHT AND HE WAS THE SAME AGE AS MY
00:23:42 FATHER. THEY WERE BOTH BORN IN
00:23:50 1927 AND BOTH SERVED THE MILITARY IN
00:23:51 WORLD WAR II. WHEN MY FATHER
00:23:55 PASSED AWAY IN 2001, ALDERMAN STONE WAS
00:23:56 VERY COMFORTING AND SHARED
00:24:00 WITH ME A LOT OF REMEMBRANCES FROM HIS
00:24:01 PERIOD IN THE WAR AND SIMILAR
00:24:08 ONES THAT I REMEMBER MY FATHER SHARING
00:24:09 WITH ME. WHILE WE DIDN'T
00:24:13 ALWAYS SEE EYE TO EYE, I HAD A
00:24:14 TREMENDOUS RESPECT FOR HIM AND I WILL
00:24:27 SURELY MISS HIM. MY CONDOLENCES TO ALL
00:24:28 OF YOU.
00:24:34 >> ALDERMAN THOMAS?
00:24:35 >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT, I TOO RISE
00:24:36 TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH THIS
00:24:39 RESOLUTION. MY HEART WAS TRULY MADE
00:24:40 HEAVY WITH THE TRANSITION OF
00:24:44 ALDERMAN STONE. IT HAS TRULY BEEN AN
00:24:45 HONOR TO SERVE WITH HIM. HE WAS
00:24:52 A GOOD PARLIAMENTARIAN AND GAVE ME SOME
00:24:53 POINTERS ON WHAT TO LOOK AT.
00:24:57 IT WAS ALSO, I HAD FUN CONVERSATIONS, A
00:24:58 LOT OF US HAD FUN
00:25:03 CONVERSATIONS ABOUT THE NEW MOVIE COMING
00:25:04 OUT. HE MADE SURE THAT WE
00:25:10 HAD SEEING THEM. HE MADE SURE THAT WE
00:25:11 COULD SEE THE NEWEST MOVIES OUT
00:25:17 ON THE SCENE. HE GAVE GREAT STAGE OF
00:25:18 ADVICE AND TOLD IT TO YOU LIKE
00:25:26 IT WAS WHETHER YOU WANTED TO HEAR IT OR
00:25:27 NOT. BERNIE WAS A TEACHER, HE
00:25:31 HAD KNOWLEDGE THAT HE IMPARTED IN ALL OF
00:25:32 US. FOR THE STONE FAMILY, I
00:25:36 WISH YOU TOO WILL FIND PEACE IN THE
00:25:37 KNOWLEDGE OF HIS LIFE AND HOW HE
00:25:41 SHARED IT. FILL YOUR THOUGHTS WITH THE
00:25:42 MEMORIES OF HIM, HIS
00:25:47 INTEGRITY, HIS INTERSECTION, HIS
00:25:48 GOODWILL AND FROM THE THOMAS FAMILY
00:25:52 AND THE 17TH WARD COMMUNITY, WE PRAY FOR
00:25:53 YOUR PEACE OF MIND. THANK
00:25:59 YOU, MR. PRESIDENT.
00:26:00 >> ALDERMAN CULLERTON?
00:26:02 >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT, I RISE IN
00:26:03 SUPPORT OF THIS RESOLUTION. IT
00:26:06 AN HONOR. I MET ALDERMAN STONE WHEN HE
00:26:07 TOOK OFFICE WITH MY FATHER TOM
00:26:13 CULLERTON IN '73.
00:26:14 IN MY CAPACITY WITH THE BILLING
00:26:15 DEPARTMENT HE WAS A TREMENDOUS HELP
00:26:17 WITH THE BILLING DEPARTMENT AND THE
00:26:18 PEOPLE OF CHICAGO IN HIS
00:26:20 UNDERSTANDING AND KNOWLEDGE OF THE
00:26:21 STRONG SAFETY CODES AND BUILDING
00:26:24 CODES. HE WAS A TREMENDOUS FRIEND TO
00:26:25 LABOR IN CHICAGO AND I ALSO
00:26:30 REMEMBER FINALLY THE YEARS I SERVED AS
00:26:31 CHIEF ELECTRICAL INSPECTOR
00:26:35 WITH HIS DAUGHTER ROBIN WHOS A TRAINING
00:26:36 OFFICER WITH THE DEPARTMENT
00:26:39 OF BUILDINGS. THE STONE FAMILY HAS
00:26:40 CONTRIBUTED MUCH TO THE CITY OF
00:26:47 CHICAGO AND THE WELFARE. THERE ARE
00:26:48 PEOPLE WALKING AROUND SAFE TODAY
00:26:52 BECAUSE OF THE CODES AND SAFETY HE
00:26:53 ADOPTED. I MISS HIM AND WISH THE
00:27:00 FAMILY WELL. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
00:27:02 >> ALDERMAN LAURINO?
00:27:04 >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT, I TOO RISE
00:27:05 IN SUPPORT OF THIS
00:27:07 RESOLUTION. ALDERMAN STONE WAS MY
00:27:08 NEIGHBORING, HE REPRESENTED THE
00:27:11 NEIGHBORING WARD. I ALWAYS WAS ABLE TO
00:27:12 GO TO HIM FOR ADVICE. ACTUALLY
00:27:15 THE LAST TIME I SAW HIM UNFORTUNATELY
00:27:16 WERE AT THE SERVICES OF ROBIN
00:27:20 OF WHO WE MISS DEARLY ALSO. I WANT TO
00:27:21 SAY THAT I THINK THAT ALDERMAN
00:27:27 STONE CARRIED THE BUILDING CODE RIGHT IN
00:27:28 HIS HEAD AND HE COULD CITE
00:27:33 ANY NUMBER OF ORDINANCES FOR US AND WE
00:27:34 REALLY RELIED ON HIM FOR THAT.
00:27:38 I THINK ONE OF HIS PROUDEST MOMENTS ALSO
00:27:39 I WILL JUST SHARE WITH YOU
00:27:45 WHEN HE AND ALDERMAN HARRIS, HAD A SMALL
00:27:46 ROLE AT THE SHAKESPEARE
00:27:54 THEATRE AND HE ENJOYED THAT AND SHARED
00:27:55 WITH EACH AND EVERYONE OF US.
00:27:59 I WANT TO MAKE SURE I EXTEND MY DEEPEST
00:28:00 SYMPATHY.
00:28:06 >> ALDERMAN PAT O'CONNOR?
00:28:09 >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT. I TOO RISE
00:28:10 IN SUPPORT OF THIS
00:28:15 RESOLUTION. I MET BERNIE IN HIGH SCHOOL.
00:28:16 BERNIE AND MY DAD WOULD
00:28:24 WATCH ME AFTER FOOTBALL GAMES AND MY
00:28:25 FATHER INTRODUCED ME TO BERNIE.
00:28:30 LATER ON WHEN I WAS THE PRIVILEGE OF
00:28:31 BEING ELECTED TO THE WARD, I GOT
00:28:38 TO WORK WITH HIM AS OUR WARD SHARED A
00:28:39 SIGNIFICANTLY LONG NORTHERN
00:28:43 BOUNDARY. WHEN I FIRST JOINED THE
00:28:44 COUNCIL THERE WERE SEVERAL MEMBERS
00:28:48 WHO WERE UNBELIEVABLY GOOD
00:28:49 PARLIAMENTARIANS. THEY WERE ABLE TO
00:28:50 GUIDE
00:28:56 THE DEBATE, SHAPE THE DEBATE BY THE
00:28:57 KNOWLEDGE OF HOW TO USE THE
00:29:01 COUNCIL RULES AND BERNIE WAS ONE OF
00:29:02 THOSE PEOPLE. HE WAS A GREAT
00:29:05 FRIEND WHEN HE WAS YOUR FRIEND, HE WAS A
00:29:06 FIERCE OPPONENT WHEN HE WAS
00:29:15 YOUR OPPONENT. HE NEVER BACKED DOWN FROM
00:29:16 SOMETHING HE THOUGHT WHEN IT
00:29:19 WAS RIGHT BUT HE SUPPORTED OTHERS WHEN
00:29:20 HE FOUND OUT HE WASN'T RIGHT
00:29:23 ALL THE TIME. I ENJOYED WORKING WITH
00:29:24 BERNIE. I WAS WITH ONE OF MY
00:29:31 CLASSMATES LAST NIGHT WHO WAS ALSO A
00:29:32 CLASSMATE OF ROBIN'S AT HIS
00:29:38 SISTER'S SHIVA AND WE WERE TALKING ABOUT
00:29:39 TO THE THAT WE WERE GOING TO
00:29:44 HAVE THIS HONOR FOR ALDERMAN STONE. JEFF
00:29:45 PALMER TOLD ME A FEW STORIES
00:29:52 ABOUT BERNIE AND ROBIN WHEN THEY WERE
00:29:53 YOUNGER AND IT WAS A GREAT
00:29:56 REMEMBRANCE. BERNIE WAS A REMARKABLE
00:29:57 ALDERMAN, AND HE WORKED HARD TO
00:30:02 REPRESENT HIS COMMUNITY AND I HOPE THAT
00:30:03 I WILL BE SEEN AS EFFECTIVE
00:30:10 AS I SEE HIM WHEN I PULL THE PLUG HERE.
00:30:11 THANK YOU.
00:30:19 >> ALDERMAN BURNETT?
00:30:20 >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I WOULD LIKE TO
00:30:21 STAND IN SUPPORT AND MY
00:30:25 RESOLUTION. HE WAS A MIX TO A LOT OF
00:30:34 FOLKS. HE DIDN'T TOLERATE A LOT.
00:30:40 HE ALWAYS SAID WHAT HE FELT, BUT HE DID
00:30:41 HAVE ANOTHER SIDE TO HIM
00:30:44 WHICH HE DID HAVE A LOT OF TOLERANCE AND
00:30:45 THAT WAS FOR MY GOOD FRIEND
00:30:53 BERT THE TERRACE AND HE WAS A GOOD
00:30:54 FRIEND AND ONE OF THE FEW GUYS IN
00:31:00 THE CITY COUNCIL WHO TOLERATED BURT AS
00:31:01 ANYONE ELSE. YEARS AGO I WAS A
00:31:10 DEMOCRAT IN THE COUNTY IN THE 90s AND
00:31:11 BERNIE ALLOWED ME TO GET TWO
00:31:17 YOUNG PEOPLEN MY TEAM WHICH WERE THE
00:31:18 STEIN BROTHERS WHO ARE DOING
00:31:23 VERY WELL RIGHT NOW AND STILL KIND OF
00:31:24 WITH ME. WE'VE ALWAYS BEEN LIKE
00:31:29 FAMILY, MYSELF COMING FROM THE 42ND WARD
00:31:30 WITH BURT, TERRACE AT THAT
00:31:37 TIME AND BERNIE AND ALL OF THOSE GUYS.
00:31:38 BERNIE IS GOING TO BE
00:31:41 REMEMBERED WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT CITY
00:31:42 COUNCIL, YOU THINK ABOUT BERNIE
00:31:47 STONE. YOU ALL SHOULD BE PROUD WITH THE
00:31:48 LEGACY THAT HE HAS LEFT YOUR
00:31:52 FAMILY. HE'S ONE OF THE SMARTEST GUYS IN
00:31:53 THE CITY COUNCIL. WE ARE
00:31:57 TRULY GOING TO MISS HIM AND ONE TIME I
00:31:58 HAD THE OPPORTUNITY, I WAS IN
00:32:03 THE ORGANIZATION CALLED THE AMERICAN
00:32:04 COUNCIL OF YOUNG POLITICAL
00:32:08 LEADERS WHICH IS SPONSORED BY THE U.S.
00:32:09 STATE DEPARTMENT AND HE ASKED
00:32:15 ME TO SPONSOR SOME YOUNG PALESTINIANS
00:32:16 COMING TO THE CITY OF CHICAGO
00:32:22 AND OF COURSE I TALKED TO MY JEWISH
00:32:23 FRIENDS AND ONE WAS BERNIE AND
00:32:29 BERT THE TERRACE AND HE SAID YEAH, LET
00:32:30 ME CHECK IT OUT AND HE
00:32:36 ACTUALLY HOSTED AN EVENT FOR THE YOUNG
00:32:37 PALESTINIAN WHICH WAS VERY
00:32:41 NICE OF HIM. AND HE WAS VERY OPEN TO ALL
00:32:42 NATIONALITIES, HELPED SO
00:32:47 MANY PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THE CITY OF
00:32:48 CHICAGO, BUT HE WAS ALSO VERY
00:32:53 STRONG ABOUT HIS BELIEF AND HIS
00:32:54 HERITAGE. AND HIM STANDING UP FOR HIS
00:33:01 BELIEF IN HIS HERITAGE ACTUALLY INSPIRED
00:33:02 A LOT OF OTHER PEOPLE IN THE
00:33:05 CITY OF CHICAGO TO BE ABLE TO STAND UP
00:33:06 FOR THEIR BELIEF AND THEIR
00:33:09 HERITAGE. I JUST WANT TO SAY TO THE
00:33:10 FAMILY, THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH
00:33:12 FOR SHARING BERNIE WITH US.
00:33:15 >> THANK YOU. ALDERMAN FIORETTI?
00:33:19 >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT, I TOO WANT
00:33:20 TO RISE IN SUPPORT OF THIS
00:33:23 RESOLUTION. I REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME I
00:33:24 MET HIM I WAS IN THE
00:33:29 COUNCIL'S OFFICE AND REPRESENTING A CASE
00:33:30 AND I HAD TO GO SEE HIM.
00:33:33 QUITE FRANKLY I WAS JUST YOUNG AND OUT
00:33:34 OF LAW SCHOOL AND QUITE
00:33:38 WORRIED ABOUT SEEING THE ALDERMAN. I
00:33:39 REMEMBER THAT MEETING AND SAT
00:33:45 DOWN AND WENT OVER THINGS AND BY THE END
00:33:46 OF THE MEETINGS WE WERE
00:33:50 LAUGHING. AND THEN CAME THE FIRST WARD
00:33:51 ALDERMAN AND HE SAID, WHO SENT
00:33:58 YOU ANYWAY? FROM THERE IT BECAME AN
00:33:59 INTERESTING DISCUSSION THAT DAY
00:34:03 I HAVE TO SAY AS I JOINED THIS COUNCIL 8
00:34:04 YEARS AGO THAT I SAW YOUR
00:34:08 FATHER AND HE WAS THOUGHTFUL,
00:34:09 CONSIDERATE AND ALWAYS SERIOUS BUT HE
00:34:17 HAD LAUGHTER. WE TALKED MOVIES AND NOW I
00:34:18 THINK I HAVE ABOUT 4,000,
00:34:26 THANKS TO HIM. BUT AT THE SAME TIME HE
00:34:27 ALWAYS MADE SURE WE KEPT IN
00:34:32 LINE WHAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE. IF IT WAS
00:34:33 ZONING, IT WAS A ZONING
00:34:37 MATTER AND NOT A LIQUOR MATTER. IN
00:34:38 HOUSING , WE KNEW WHAT WE HAD TO
00:34:44 DO. HE KNEW ALL THE CODES, HE KNEW
00:34:45 EVERYTHING ABOUT THE CODE. IT WAS
00:34:49 HIS LIFE AND SO WAS HIS FAMILY AND ALSO
00:34:50 HIS CONSTITUENTS. IT'S WHAT
00:34:57 WE SHOULD ALL BE A MODEL OF ON THIS
00:34:58 COUNCIL. ON BEHALF OF MY SECOND
00:35:03 WARD AND THIS FAMILY, ALL MY
00:35:04 CONDOLENCES.
00:35:08 >> ALDERMAN HARRIS?
00:35:09 >> MR. PRESIDENT, I TOO RISE IN SUPPORT
00:35:10 OF THIS RESOLUTION. EVERYBODY
00:35:14 HAS SAID IT ALL IN A NUTSHELL. I WANT TO
00:35:15 THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING HIM
00:35:22 TO BE PART AND MENTOR SO MANY PEOPLE TO
00:35:23 ALLOW US TO COME AND SHARE
00:35:28 HIS WISDOM WITH US. BERNIE WAS THE KIND
00:35:29 OF GUY, HE WAS NEVER AFRAID
00:35:34 TO BE BLUNT, TO BE HONEST AND TO TELL
00:35:35 YOU THAT YOU ARE ON THE WRONG
00:35:39 SIDE OF THE ISSUE. OR IF YOU DIDN'T GET
00:35:40 IT QUITE RIGHT, HE WOULD SAY,
00:35:44 MAYBE YOU NEED TO RETHINK THAT CONCEPT
00:35:45 AND START OVER. TODAY I STAND
00:35:50 HERE AS A MENTEE AND I'M GRATEFUL. ON
00:35:51 BEHALF OF MYSELF AND MY FAMILY,
00:36:02 YOU HAVE OUR CONDOLENCES.
00:36:04 >> ALDERMAN?
00:36:05 >> MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL, I TOO
00:36:06 RISE IN SUPPORT OF THIS
00:36:08 RESOLUTION AND EXTEND MY CONDOLENCES TO
00:36:09 THE FAMILY. AND UNLIKELY
00:36:17 PAIR, UNLIKELY FRIENDSHIP BETWEEN
00:36:18 ALDERMAN STONE AND MYSELF. I WAS A
00:36:25 WIDE EYED PERSON COMING TO THE COUNCIL
00:36:26 WITH ALL OF THESE IDEAS AND
00:36:29 BERNIE WAS THE ONE THAT JUST SAT ME DOWN
00:36:30 AND EXPLAINED TO ME HOW
00:36:35 THINGS WORK. I APPRECIATE THAT. I THINK
00:36:36 YOU HAVE HEARD HERE ABOUT HOW
00:36:40 HE WAS A MENTOR TO A LOT OF PEOPLE AND
00:36:41 HE TALKED ABOUT THE WAY THINGS
00:36:45 HAPPENED AND HOW THEY GOT DONE AND HOW
00:36:46 YOU CAN GET THINGS DONE AND HE
00:36:50 TALKED TO YOU ABOUT PICKING YOUR BATTLES
00:36:51 AND EVERYTHING WAS NOT A
00:36:54 BATTLE AND ABOUT HOW TO DO THINGS THE
00:36:55 CORRECT WAY. I PARTICULARLY
00:37:01 ENJOYED THE SPIRITED DEBATE BETWEEN HE
00:37:02 AND BURT THE TERRORIST. AS
00:37:12 ALDERMAN BURKE SAID IT WAS GOOD OLD
00:37:13 COUNCIL DAYS BUT THEY HAD
00:37:20 SPIRITED DEBATE AND WHAT I ADMIRED MORE
00:37:21 WAS HIS INTELLIGENCE AND HOW
00:37:25 HE WORKED AND WORKED TO KEEP EVERYTHING
00:37:26 RELEVANT AND UP TO DATE. IF
00:37:30 WE WERE LOOKING AT THINGS SUCH AS
00:37:31 BRINGING AIR RATED CONCRETE FOR
00:37:39 BUILDINGS HE WAS ALWAYS OPEN AND
00:37:40 RECEPTIVE TO NEW IDEAS. I TOO WAS ON
00:37:50 THAT DC TRIP AND BERNIE WAS WALKING WITH
00:37:51 THE REST OF US MINDING HIS
00:37:55 OWN BUSINESS AND THAT'S WHY IT BECAME SO
00:37:56 FUNNY. HE HAD A GREAT SENSE
00:38:01 OF HUMOR, I ALWAYS LOVED CHATTING WITH
00:38:02 HIM, BUT HE REALLY DID CARE
00:38:07 ABOUT HIS CONSTITUENTS, HE CARED ABOUT
00:38:08 THE CITY OF CHICAGO AND HE WAS
00:38:12 A WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE AND INFORMATION
00:38:13 AND I SURELY DO MISS THAT, MY
00:38:19 CONDOLENCES.
00:38:20 >> ALDERMAN POPE?
00:38:21 >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT, I TOO RISE
00:38:22 IN SUPPORT OF THIS RESOLUTION
00:38:25 AND WISH THE FAMILY MY BEST. BERNIE WAS
00:38:26 A STRAIGHT SHOOTER AND
00:38:31 DOWN-TO-EARTH AND AS SOPHISTICATED AS HE
00:38:32 WAS IN HIS KNOWLEDGE OF THE
00:38:39 BUILDING CODE, HE NEVER LOST SIGHT OF
00:38:40 THE SMALLER ISSUES. HE FOUGHT
00:38:47 AND ADVOCATED EQUALLY AS HARD FOR THOSE
00:38:48 KIND OF THINGS AND THAT
00:38:52 REALLY IMPRESSED ME. HE WASN'T THERE
00:38:53 JUST TO GRAB THE HEAD LINES. HE
00:38:57 HAD A WIDE RANGE OF ITEMS THAT HE WAS
00:38:58 INTERESTED IN AND HE KNEW
00:39:04 IMPACTED PEOPLE'S LIVES EACH DAY. HE
00:39:05 WILL BE MISSED, AS ALL OF MY
00:39:11 COLLEAGUES HAVE SAID, HE'S BEEN A MENTOR
00:39:12 TO ALL OF US. THANK YOU FOR
00:39:16 ALLOWING HIM TO SHARE HIS EXPERTISE AND
00:39:17 HIS LIFE WITH US.
00:39:24 >> ALDERMAN CARDENAS?
00:39:26 >> THANK YOU, I TOO HAVE GREAT MEMORIES
00:39:27 OF BERNIE STONE. I MISS THE
00:39:33 MOVIES. HE WOULD HAVE GIVEN ME A COPY OF
00:39:34 "GAME OF THRONES" FOR SURE.
00:39:40 I NOT ONLY ENJOYED THE DEBATES, BUT HE
00:39:41 SHARED HIS WISDOM AND I
00:39:49 APPRECIATE HIM AS AN ALDERMAN AND HE WAS
00:39:50 A GREAT MAN, I WILL MISS
00:39:56 HIM. MY CONDOLENCES.
00:39:57 >> ON BEHALF OF THE ENTIRE CITY,
00:39:58 OBVIOUSLY YOU KNOW YOUR FATHER NEVER
00:40:03 STOOD ON CEREMONY, BUT HE ALWAYS STOOD
00:40:04 BY HIS CONVICTIONS. HE WILL BE
00:40:10 REMEMBERED OBVIOUSLY FOR HIS LONGEVITY
00:40:11 AND TIME HERE BUT ALSO HI
00:40:19 LOYALTY TO THE CITY OF CHICAGO. HE WAS
00:40:20 ALSO PLAINSPOKEN AND HE HAD A
00:40:28 GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR, HE HAD A GREAT
00:40:29 SENSE OF HONOR AND MOST OF ALL A
00:40:37 GREAT SENSE OF HIS TOWN PRIDE. MY
00:40:38 CONDOLENCES TO YOU FROM ME AND THE
00:40:46 CITY OF CHICAGO.
00:40:47 ALDERMAN BURKE.
00:40:48 >> MR. PRESIDENT, I MOVE THE ADOPTION OF
00:40:49 THE RESOLUTION BY A RISING

01:32:09 WHAT THE PRESIDENT STARTED AS A
01:32:13 YOUNG LAWYER HERE IN THE STATE OF

01:32:21 NOT A MORE FATAL ERROR TO
01:32:25 YOUNG
01:32:27 LAWYERS AND RELY TOO MUCH ON SPEECH

01:33:22 THAT WAR WAS THE PRESIDENT OF
01:33:26 THE UNITED STATES. FOR THAT, WE SHOULD

01:33:38 NATION FOR EVERYONE. THANK YOU.

01:41:07 BUT WORKING IN HER COMMUNITY
01:41:10 IS
01:41:11 WHAT MADE THE DIFFERENCE. BECAUSE IT WAS
01:41:12 NOT JUST ABOUT MARY AND HER
01:41:15 SIX CHILDREN AND HER HUSBAND, BUT ALL OF
01:41:16 THOSE SHE CAME IN CONTACT
01:41:21 WITH. SIX CHILDREN. I THOUGHT I HAD A
01:41:22 BIG JOB WITH SEVEN. SHE HAD
01:41:25 A
01:41:28 BIG JOB. ESPECIALLY BEING AN LAW
01:41:29 ENFORCEMENT OFFICER. FOR OUR
01:41:31 COMMUNITY, WE COULD NOT BE MORE PROUD OF
01:41:32 AN INDIVIDUAL THAT CAN SAY
01:41:36 THAT I CAN LOOK UP TO. A WOMAN OF VALOR.
01:41:37 OF WHAT THAT SHE HAS
01:41:42 ACCOMPLISHED, WE ARE TRULY PROUD OF HER.
01:41:43 HER WORDS THAT SHE LIVE BY,
01:41:48 THERE IS ALWAYS TIME TO MAKE A
01:41:49 DIFFERENCE. EVERYBODY CAN DO
01:41:53 SOMETHING
01:41:56 TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THIS WORLD. MARY
01:41:57 SAW THAT AND SHE SAW IT
01:42:01 BEING AN OPEN HEART OF THIS WOULD BE A
01:42:02 DIFFERENT WORLD AND IF
01:42:06 EVERYBODY WOULD TO SOMETHING TO MAKE A
01:42:07 DIFFERENCE, IT CAN BE. THANK
01:42:13 YOU MADAM PRESIDENT. I KNOW THAT

01:42:42 WHAT
01:42:44 IS MOST IMPORTANT ABOUT OFFICER TILLERY
01:42:45 IS HER COMMITMENT AND
01:42:48 DEDICATION TO FAMILY AND TO KIDS. I SAW
01:42:49 THAT EARLY ON AT THE THIRD

01:42:56 THE POLICE AND THE COMMUNITY
01:42:59 LED BY EXAMPLE IN HOW TO GET ALONG WITH
01:43:00 THE PROGRAMMING AND
01:43:03 EVERYTHING. IT WAS A GOOD TIME AND
01:43:04 LEARNED A LOT. I'M GLAD TO SEE
01:43:09 THAT YOU KEPT ON FOLLOWING YOUR DREAMS
01:43:10 AND BEING COMMITTED TO WHO YOU
01:43:13 ARE AND TO WHO YOU HAVE BEEN AND
