00:20:04 YOUR CHURCH DOES WHAT CHURCHES SHOULD DO WHICH IS TO EXTEND THE
00:20:07 MINISTRY BEYOND THE WALLS OF THE CHURCH. I WANT TO SAY THAT I HAVE
00:20:11 COME ACROSS SO MANY MEMBERS OF YOUR CONGREGATION THAT ARE TOILING
00:20:18 IN THE FIELDS AND TOILING IN OUR COMMUNITIES BECAUSE OF YOUR
00:20:24 LEADERSHIP AND YOUR SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT AND GROWTH THAT YOU GIVE
00:20:28 TO YOUR MEMBERS, THAT HAPPENS.
00:20:29 THE SECOND THING I WANT TO SAY; I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR SPEAKING
00:20:36 OUT FOR INJUSTICE WHEREVER IT IS, I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR COMING
00:20:41 TO THE THIRD WARD WHERE WE HAD THAT TRAGEDY SHOOTING OF DARIUS
00:20:47 BROWN AND THE WILLINGNESS TO PUT THOSE BAD GUYS BEHIND BARS.

00:21:36 BLOWN AWAY AND THE THEY WERE GOING TO CHICAGO FOR THIS SERVICE
00:21:41 WHICH I WASN'T EXCITED ABOUT IT AT ALL.

00:29:07 THERE HE OFFERED SUNDAY MASS TO A CONGREGATION IN LESS THAN 100 IN
00:29:13 ITS EARLIEST DAYS.
00:29:14 FROM THOSE MODEST BEGINNINGS THE PERISH PROSPERED TO 9,000 AND
00:29:33 2400 FAITHFUL.
00:29:42 HE WENT TO TO THE LORD.
00:29:46 THAT CHURCH HAS NOT ONLY SURVIVED MANY YEARS BUT AROUND THE
00:29:56 SPIRITUAL AND INSPIRATIONAL LEADERSHIP OF MONS NOR, FROM TO 1952,
00:30:12 AND FROM 1952 TO HIS RETIREMENT IN THE 70s.
00:30:19 IN 1959 MONSIGNOR FOUNDED THE RELATIONSHIP OF MANY CIVIC GROUPS
00:30:29 TO MANY IN THE EARLY DEFINING YEARS OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS STRUGGLE.
00:30:36 SO MANY MEMORIES ASSOCIATED WITH SAINT SABINA AFTER A GREW UP ON
00:30:43 THE SOUTH SIDE AFTER WORLD WAR II.
00:30:46 I REMEMBER THE BASKETBALL TOURNAMENTS AS A YOUNG BOY IN THE PARISH.
00:30:58 EVERY YEAR SAINT SABINA CAME OUT ON TOP FROM SCHOOLS.
00:31:05 THEY HAD AN AYSO PROGRAM AND THE THRIVING HOLY NAME SOCIETY, ARE
00:31:13 SPONSORING DINNERS AND OTHER SOCIAL ACTIVITIES.
00:31:16 YES, THE HOLY NAME SOCIETY WAS ALSO FOUNDED IN 1916.
00:31:21 FOR 100 YEARS, SAINT SABINA HAS BEEN A VITAL AND STABILIZING FORCE
00:31:28 FOR GOOD.
00:31:31 TODAY FATHER MIKE IS ABOUT REACH AND INVOLVEMENT THROUGH
00:31:35 COMMITMENT TO ENRICH THE SPIRITUAL AND EDUCATIONAL GROWTH OF
00:31:39 CHURCH AND COMMUNITY.
00:31:41 HE INSPIRES THE WORK OF THE INDIVIDUAL AND THE CAPACITY WITHIN
00:31:45 EVERY PERSON WHOSE LIFE HE'S TOUCHED TO ACHIEVE SELF REALIZATION.
00:31:50 FOR 32 YEARS NOW HE'S COMMITTED HIMSELF TO EXPOSING AND CONQUERING
00:31:57 AND SOCIAL INJUSTICE WHILE IMPARTING THE DEEPLY INGRAINED VALUES
00:32:08 AND HUMANITY.
00:32:15 THANK YOU.
00:32:16 I CONGRATULATE YOU ON THIS ANNIVERSARY.
00:32:20 I REMEMBER IN MORNING MASS, THE GOSPEL READING WAS FROM LUKE 4.24.
00:32:32 I TELL YOU THE TRUTH, NO PROPHET IS ACCEPTED IN HIS OWN COUNTRY.
00:32:43 AFTER THAT I TOLD HIM THE GOSPEL REMINDED ME OF YOU.
00:32:50 NOT EVERY CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN COMPLETELY SUCCESSFUL.
00:32:53 I HAVE TO CONFESS YOUR HONOR, BACK IN 1999 FATHER ENLISTED ME ON A
00:33:03 WAR AGAINST JERRY SPRINGER.
00:33:06 IT WAS 1999, THAT HE ACTUALLY WROTE A LETTER TO THE SUPERINTENDENT
00:33:13 OF POLICE DEMANDING THAT HE TAKE ACTION BECAUSE JERRY SPRINGER
00:33:18 SHOW WAS DEPICTING VIOLENCE AND PEOPLE WERE THROWING CHAIRS AT ONE
00:33:23 ANOTHER AND PUNCHING ONE ANOTHER. HE SAID TO ME, THIS SOUNDS LIKE
00:33:26 SOMETHING THE CITY COUNCIL SHOULD HAVE A HEARING ON.
00:33:29 SO THERE I AM.
00:33:31 I INTRODUCED THIS RESOLUTION
00:33:34 >>MAYOR RAHM EMMANUEL: NOW WE UNDERSTAND THE SOURCE OF SOME OF
00:33:37 YOUR IDEAS.
00:33:38 [ LAUGHTER ]
00:33:39 >> BLAME HIM, NOT ME.
00:33:41 THERE HAD TO BE, AM I RIGHT, FATHER MIKE? THERE WERE 40 CAMERAS
00:33:48 THAT CAME FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD FROM ASIA, FROM EUROPE. HERE HE
00:33:56 SAT FOR QUESTIONING.
00:33:58 GUESS WHAT, THERE AIN'T KNOW VIOLENT JERRY SPRINGER SHOW IN
00:34:03 CHICAGO ANYMORE.
00:34:05 WHAT A VISIONARY, WHAT A DEDICATED SPIRITUAL LEADER FATHER MIKE IS
00:34:10 IN THE TRADITION OF HIS PREDECESSORS AT THIS GREAT INSTITUTION AT
00:34:20 SAINT SABINA.
00:34:24 MR. PRESIDENT, I'M PROUD AS YOU ARE TO CALL FATHER FLEGER A
00:34:35 FRIEND.
00:34:36 >>MAYOR RAHM EMMANUEL: FATHER MIKE TO THE CONGREGATION OF THE
00:34:42 LEADERSHIP, IT'S TO HONOR THE 100 YEARS ABOUT SAINT SABINA, BUT
00:34:49 THE MAJORITY OF COMMENTS ARE ABOUT YOU.
00:34:51 I KNOW YOU WANT TO TAKE THIS MOMENT TO CELEBRATE THE GREAT HISTORY
00:35:02 OF SAINT SABINA, AND I DON'T THINK IT'S LOST IN THE PREDECESSORS
00:35:08 TO THE GREAT CHURCH THAT THEIR VOICES ALWAYS CHANGE SOCIAL JUSTICE
00:35:14 AND MAKING SURE WHAT HAPPENS IN THE CHURCH AND THE SENSE OF
00:35:18 COMMUNITY WAS NOT JUST CONFINED TO THE CHURCH BUT TO THE LARGER
00:35:24 COMMUNITY IT SERVED.
00:35:25 I CAN'T SPEAK FOR THE HISTORY AS ALDERMAN BURKE KNOWS IT, BUT I
00:35:30 CAN SPEAK TO YOUR WORK.
00:35:31 YOUR WORK IS THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN SAINT SABINA BUT
00:35:44 FOR THE CITY OF CHICAGO.
00:35:46 WE ARE A BETTER CITY BECAUSE OF THAT VISION.
00:35:48 WE ARE A BETTER CITY BECAUSE YOU NEVER ALLOWED THE WALLS OR THE
00:35:58 DEFINITION OF SAINT SABINA, YOU HAVE CHALLENGED THE CHURCH AND THE
00:36:02 CITY TO ASPIRE TOWARDS IT'S BETTER ANGELS.
00:36:05 NOW I'M GOING TO BREAK THE NEWS TO ALL OF YOU, I REFER TO HIM AS
00:36:11 RABBI MIKE.
00:36:12 I KNOW A LOT OF CATHOLICS HERE, AS A MEMBER OF THE JEWISH FAITH,
00:36:18 BECAUSE WHEN I GET A CALL FROM HIM, IT'S A VERSE FROM THE JEWISH
00:36:29 TESTAMENT.
00:36:30 JUST 5 WEEKS AGO I WAS IN THE BASEMENT OF SAINT SABINA AND
00:36:40 CHALLENGED BY FATHER MIKE.
00:36:45 WE HAVE SUMMER JOBS TO 40,000 KIDS.
00:36:51 RATHER THAT REST ON OUR LAURELS. FATHER MIKE -- RAISED THE BAR AND
00:36:59 SAID WHAT ARE WE DOING FOR YEAR-ROUND JOBS. SOCIAL SERVICES
00:37:08 AGENCIES AND MYSELF RECRUITED 55 YOUNG MEN THAT HE TALKED ABOUT
00:37:13 WHO WERE ON THIS SIDE OF LIFE, TRAVELING ON THIS SIDE OF THE
00:37:17 TRACKS.
00:37:18 WHO MADE A DECISION THAT THEY WOULD DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT WITH
00:37:23 THEIR LIFE.
00:37:26 THEY WOULD NO LONGER EXERCISE VIOLENCE BUT THEY WOULD TRY TO BE A
00:37:33 PRODUCTIVE SOUL FOR THEMSELVES AND THE COMMUNITY.
00:37:35 BOTH OF US TOLD THEM IN OUR OWN VOICES THAT THE ENTIRE CITY'S
00:37:40 RESPONSIBILITY SITS WITH THEM TO PROVE WHAT A JOB COULD BE TO
00:37:46 SOMEBODY MAKING A CHOICE BETWEEN WHICH AS YOGI BEAR WOULD SAY WHEN
00:37:54 HE GETS TO A FORK IN THE ROAD, TAKE IT.
00:37:58 THAT IS WITH YOUR GUIDANCE, TO ALL THE 2 MILLION SOULS IN THE
00:38:04 CITY, YOU HAVE TOUCHED ALL OF US AND CHALLENGED US TO LIVE A LIFE
00:38:08 OF SOCIAL JUSTICE.
00:38:09 THAT IS TRUE TO SAINT SABINA, IT'S TRUE TO YOU AND WE ARE BETTER
00:38:15 BECAUSE OF YOUR COMMITMENT FOR THE IDEALS OF SOCIAL JUSTICE.
00:38:21 SO ON BEHALF OF THE CITY OF CHICAGO CONGRATULATIONS ON THIS
00:38:26 CENTENNIAL AND THE NEXT CENTENNIAL.
00:38:27 THANK YOU.
00:38:31 [ APPLAUSE ]
00:38:56 [ APPLAUSE ]
00:39:30 >>MAYOR RAHM EMMANUEL: MADAM CLERK.
00:39:36 THE RESOLUTIONS.
00:39:37 >>CLERK: A RESOLUTION FROM HIS HONOR THE MAYOR AND ALDERMAN
00:39:48 CAPULMAN.
00:39:49 WHEREAS ANGIE BIANCO WAS RAISED BY HER FATHER AND GRANDMOTHER AND
00:39:53 WHEREAS SHE BEGAN TO USE DRUGS AT 9 YEARS OLD AND DROPPED OUT OF
00:40:01 HIGH SCHOOL AND USE HEROIN AND JOINED A GANG AND BECAME A VIOLENT
00:40:12 CRIMINAL AND WENT TO JAIL.
00:40:17 AFTER RELEASED FROM PRISON, BIANCA THEN WORKED TO HELP YOUTH IN
00:40:29 STREET ACTIVITY.
00:40:30 IN OCTOBER 2013, SHE BECAME A COMMUNITY AFFAIRS SPECIALIST AND
00:40:35 VIOLENCE REDUCTION TRAINER AT THE CEASE FIRE HEADQUARTERS AT THE
00:40:42 UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS, CHICAGO.
00:40:47 WHEREAS TODAY BIANCA IS A SOBER CITIZEN AND DEDICATED TO
00:40:54 PREVENTING VIOLENCE AND NOW SHE TRAVELS INTERNATIONALLY TO SPEAK
00:41:05 ON GANGS, VIOLENCE PREVENTION, SUBSTANCE ABUSE AND HOMELESSNESS
00:41:09 AND SOCIAL CHANGE. WHEREAS MS. BIANCA HAS BEEN FEATURED IN
00:41:21 CHICAGO, RADIO, CNN, AND 2014 ISSUE OF ROTARY, INTERNATIONAL
00:41:26 MAGAZINE AND THE NATIONAL DRUG CONTROL POLICY WEBSITE AND INVITED
00:41:43 GUEST IN PRESIDENT OBAMA INAUGURATION.
00:41:47 AND THE FACET RULE BY THE OFFICIATE ORGANIZATION BY THE HUMANITIES
00:42:00 BY THE UNITED GRADUATE COLLEGES AND SEMINARY.
00:42:06 WHEREAS THIS DAY, 2016, BIANCA WITNESSED MEN FIRING INTO A CROWD.
00:42:15 SHE PARKED HER CAR AND JUMPED OUT AND RAN TO A 15-YEAR-OLD BOY WHO
00:42:22 HAD BEEN SHOT AND APPLIED ENOUGH PRESSURE TO HIS WOUND TO SAVE HIS
00:42:27 LIFE.
00:42:28 NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT WE THE MAYOR AND THE CITY
00:42:32 COUNCIL OF CITY OF CHICAGO ON THIS DAY JULY 2016 DO HONOR BIANCA
00:42:45 FOR SAVING A LIFE.
00:42:48 BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT A SUITABLE COPY OF THIS RESOLUTION BE
00:42:53 GIVEN TO BIANCA AS A TOKEN OF OUR APPRECIATION AND ESTEEM.
00:43:03 >>MAYOR RAHM EMMANUEL: ALDERMAN BURKE?
00:43:08 >>MAYOR RAHM EMMANUEL: HEARING NO OBJECTION, SO ORDERED.
00:43:11 >> YOUR HONOR, I WOULD REFER TO ALDERMAN CAPULMAN.
00:43:19 >> THANK YOU, THOSE WHO KNOW BIANCA.
00:43:30 HELEN KELLER: "OPTIMISM IS A FAITH THAT LEADS TO ACHIEVEMENT.
00:43:35 NOTHING CAN BE DONE WITHOUT CONFIDENCE".
00:43:39 BIANCA HAS HAD HER SHARE OF SUFFERING BUT THROUGH HER OWN PERSONAL
00:43:45 RECOVERY SHE LATCHED ON TO THE GREAT OF OPTIMISM.
00:43:48 ANYONE WHO KNOWS HER CAN TESTIFY THAT SHE HAS NEVER EVER HAD A BAD
00:43:54 THING TO SAY ABOUT ANYONE.
00:43:57 SHE IS CONSISTENTLY ABLE TO SEE THE BEST IN OTHERS.
00:44:04 AND MOST ESPECIALLY AND THOSE WHO ARE CAUGHT UP IN GANG VIOLENCE
00:44:09 WHO FEEL FORGOTTEN, WHO HAVE NO HOPE AND THOSE WHO SOMETIMES THINK
00:44:14 THE ONLY WAY THEY CAN MOVE FORWARD IS TO FIGHT BACK WITH HATE.
00:44:23 AND THAT'S WHERE BIANCA COMES IN.
00:44:28 SHE'S ABLE TO LOVE THEM WHERE THEY ARE AND SHE'S OFTEN VIEWED AS A
00:44:34 PARENT THEY NEVER HAD.
00:44:36 HER OUTCOME HELPS THEM TO SEE A BETTER WAY.
00:44:39 DON'T GET ME WRONG, BIANCA IS TOUGH AND SHE CALLS SOME OF THESE
00:44:43 GUYS TO TASK, TO PUT DOWN THEIR GUNS AND TO HAVE HOPE AND
00:44:47 CONFIDENCE AGAIN.
00:44:48 SHE HAS LITERALLY AND I MEAN LITERALLY SAVED THE LIVES OF MANY
00:44:55 YOUNG PEOPLE CAUGHT UP IN THE CYCLE OF VIOLENCE.
00:45:01 AS ELECTED PUBLIC SERVANTS, WE ALL COME ACROSS PEOPLE IN VERY
00:45:08 ROUGH CIRCUMSTANCES.
00:45:09 BIANCA IS A REMINDER TO ALL OF US THAT WE NEED TO FOCUS ON THE
00:45:14 GREAT POSSIBILITIES THAT CAN WEIGHT THOSE WHO ARE FEELING AT THEIR
00:45:21 VERY LOWEST LOW.
00:45:23 WHO KNOWS LIKE BIANCA, WE MAY ALSO BE ABLE TO SAVE A LIFE.
00:45:28 THANK YOU.
00:45:30 >>MAYOR RAHM EMMANUEL: ALDERMAN MOORE?
00:45:32 >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT.
00:45:33 I STAND IN SUPPORT OF THIS RESOLUTION.
00:45:40 BIANCA IS A PERSONIFICATION OF A POWER AND REDEMPTION. I HAVE
00:45:44 KNOWN BIANCA EVER SINCE THE EARLY DAYS OF HER MARCH TOWARD
00:45:48 RECOVERY WHEN SHE LIVED IN RODGERS PARK, I THINK SHE STILL LIVES
00:45:53 IN RODGERS PARK.
00:45:58 AND SHE IS AS ALDERMAN SAID, A GREAT WOMAN OF COURAGE.
00:46:02 IT TAKES A LOT OF COURAGE TO GO THROUGH RECOVERY, TO BATTLE
00:46:08 ADDICTION, TO RECONNECT WITH YOUR FAMILY, TO MAKE AMENDS AND THEN
00:46:16 WHAT BIANCA DID WAS GO BEYOND THAN JUST REPAIRING HER OWN PERSONAL
00:46:21 LIFE.
00:46:22 SHE BEGAN A NEW LIFE OF HELPING OTHERS TO REPAIR THEIR LIVES.
00:46:26 WE HEARD OF ONE INCIDENT WHERE SHE LITERALLY SAVED A LIFE OF A
00:46:32 YOUNG BOY WHO HAD BEEN SHOT, BUT EVERY SINGLE DAY SHE IS SAVING
00:46:38 LIVES OF OTHERS THROUGH HER WORDS, HER ACTIONS, BUT MOST
00:46:43 IMPORTANTLY THROUGH HER EXAMPLE.
00:46:46 AN EXAMPLE OF COURAGE, AN EXAMPLE OF FORTITUDE.
00:46:49 SO, I THINK THIS IS A WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY, NOT ONLY TO HONOR AN
00:46:57 AMAZING WOMAN, BUT ALSO TO HONOR MANY OTHERS OF THOSE WHO HAVE
00:47:05 SUCCESSFULLY BATTLED ADDICTION AND NOW LIVING A LIFE OF SOBRIETY,
00:47:16 AND THROUGH THEIR EFFORTS HELPING OTHERS TO DO THE SAME.
00:47:19 THANK YOU, BIANCA FOR YOUR SERVICE TO OTHERS AND YOUR GREAT
00:47:24 EXAMPLE.
00:47:25 >>MAYOR RAHM EMMANUEL: ALDERMAN BURNETT?
00:47:28 >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT.
00:47:31 I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO RISE IN SUPPORT OF THIS RESOLUTION AND WOULD
00:47:36 LIKE TO THANK MY COLLEAGUE ALDERMAN CAPULMAN FOR BRINGING THIS
00:47:44 FORWARD.
00:47:45 I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO VISIT THE WOMEN'S PRISON WITH MY CHURCH
00:47:51 FOR ALMOST 20 YEARS EVERY MONTH FOR MANY YEARS AND NOW LOGAN
00:47:56 PRISON FOR EVERY OTHER MONTH.
00:47:57 I'M SURE I MAY HAVE CROSSED PATHS WITH BIANCA AT THOSE TIMES.
00:48:05 I WANT TO LET YOU KNOW, MR. CHAIRMAN, ARE AND EVERYONE ELSE, IT'S
00:48:09 HARD FOR THE WOMEN IN OUR SOCIETY.
00:48:11 A LOT OF PEOPLE KIND OF OVERLOOK THEM. A LOT OF THEM GET
00:48:16 CHALLENGING AND GET ADDICTED TO DRUGS AND A LOT OF OTHER THINGS
00:48:20 HAPPEN TO THEM IN THEIR LIVES THAT CAUSE THEM TO GO THAT WAY
00:48:26 BECAUSE OF NEGLECT AND MOST OF IT IS FROM FAMILIES
00:48:38 AND SPOUSES.
00:48:39 YOU HAVE TO OVERCOME THOSE THINGS. BIANCA, I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT
00:48:44 YOU ARE AN INSPIRATION TO A LOT OF WOMEN BEHIND THE WALLS AND YOU
00:48:49 GIVE THEM HOPE AND THEY KNOW THEY HAVE OPPORTUNITIES WHEN THEY
00:48:54 COME OUT HERE THAT THEY CAN CHANGE. YOU INSPIRING AND CHANGING
00:48:59 THEIR LIVES ON THAT END, BUT ALSO YOU ARE INSPIRING AND SAVING
00:49:04 LIVES ON THE OTHER END BECAUSE A LOT OF FOLKS THINK THAT CRIME IS
00:49:09 ONLY IN THE AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY, GANGS IS ONLY IN THE
00:49:14 AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY, DRUGS ONLY IN THE AFRICAN AMERICAN
00:49:18 COMMUNITY.
00:49:19 THEY ARE IN ALL COMMUNITIES.
00:49:21 ALL COMMUNITIES FACE THOSE CHALLENGES AND WE NEED PEOPLE TO HELP
00:49:29 STOP AND CHANGE THOSE LIVES.
00:49:31 WHEN 1 PERSON GETS SHOT IN OUR COMMUNITY, THE FIRST THING THAT A
00:49:35 LOT OF US WORRY ABOUT IS THE RETALIATION, BECAUSE ONE SHOOTING CAN
00:49:42 BE MULTIPLIED BY OTHER KILLINGS. SO, FOLKS LIKE YOU, GO OUT THERE
00:49:46 IN THE GAP AND TRYING TO STOP THINGS FROM RETALIATION AFTER THAT
00:49:50 ONE SHOOTING. YOU ARE TRYING TO STOP OTHER LIVES FROM BEING
00:49:56 INJURED OR OTHER PEOPLE FROM BEING KILLED BECAUSE OF THOSE
00:50:00 RETALIATIONS.
00:50:01 YOU ARE ACTUALLY PUTTING YOUR LIFE ON THE LINE.
00:50:03 YOU ARE NOT DEALING WITH FOLKS WHO ARE SOMETIMES IRRATIONAL AND
00:50:08 SOMETIMES VERY EMOTIONAL. I WANT TO COMMEND YOU FOR ALL OF THE
00:50:12 THINGS THAT YOU DO FOR CEASE FIRE AND ALL THAT YOU DO FOR PEOPLE
00:50:17 THAT ARE ON DRUGS AND ALCOHOL.
00:50:20 YOUR FAMILY, I WANT TO THANK THEM FOR ALLOWING YOU TO DO THE
00:50:26 THINGS YOU DO FOR FOLKS IN THE COMMUNITY.
00:50:28 I'M SURE YOUR SON AND OTHER SIBLINGS AT TIMES MAYBE WORRIED ABOUT
00:50:33 YOU WHEN YOU ARE OUT THERE WITH SOME KILLERS, DRUG DEALERS,
00:50:40 GANG-BANGERS AND WITH ALL THOSE FOLKS TRYING TO TURN THINGS AROUND.
00:50:45 I THANK GOD FOR WHAT YOU ARE DOING, STAY FOCUSED ON GOD, KEEP
00:50:50 DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU.
00:50:57 >>MAYOR RAHM EMMANUEL: ALDERMAN?
00:50:59 >> THANK YOU, I TOO WANT TO CONGRATULATE BIANCA.
00:51:11 AS A SAFE HAVEN, CALLED ME TO TALK TO YOU AS AN INSPIRING WHO
00:51:17 LIVED WITH AND WITH FAMILIES AND OTHERS WHO HAVE BEEN ADDICTED TO
00:51:21 HEROIN.
00:51:22 WHAT YOU HAVE DONE IS TRULY INSPIRED ME. I WANT YOU TO CONTINUE ON
00:51:27 YOUR PATH AS YOU BECOME AN INSPIRATION TO OTHERS ESPECIALLY WOMEN
00:51:31 AND MEN THROUGHOUT OUR COMMUNITIES BECAUSE ANYONE THAT CAN CONQUER
00:51:36 AN ADDICTION TO HEROIN CAN CONQUER THE WORLD. I TRULY AM
00:51:41 APPRECIATIVE OF YOUR WORK IN OUR COMMUNITY AND TRULY APPRECIATIVE
00:51:46 OF YOU GIVING YOURSELF TO SO MANY OTHERS WHILE YOU STILL HAVE A
00:51:51 FAMILY. AGAIN, CONTINUE IN THE WORK THAT YOU ARE DOING AND GOD
00:51:57 BLESS YOU.
00:51:58 >>MAYOR RAHM EMMANUEL: ALDERMAN SPOSATO?
00:51:59 >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT, I TOO SUPPORT THIS RESOLUTION.
00:52:06 I MET BIANCA ABOUT -- 5 YEARS AGO IN A HOMELESS RUN FOR SAFE HAVEN.
00:52:16 BIANCA WAS PRETTY MUCH ONE OF MY NEIGHBORS.
00:52:20 SHE LIVED IN OAK PARK. I LIVED THERE MY WHOLE LIFE. ONLY TO FIND
00:52:25 OUT SHE CAME FROM A RATHER INFLUENTIAL FAMILY.
00:52:31 HER FAMILY OWNED THE HOTDOG STANDS, ONE OF THE FAMOUS IN
00:52:38 CHICAGOLAND. SHE GAVE ME HER TESTIMONY AND I WAS SO MOVED ABOUT IT.
00:52:43 FROM THEN ON, WE BECAME FRIENDS AND I HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING HER.
00:52:47 IT'S A GREAT SUCCESS STORY.
00:52:58 CERTAINLY A MOTIVATIONAL STORY. GREAT TO SEE YOU CONTINUE ON THE
00:53:01 GOOD WORK, GOOD LUCK AND GOD BLESS YOU.
00:53:04 THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT.
00:53:06 >>MAYOR RAHM EMMANUEL: ALDERMAN BURKE, CLOSE.
00:53:08 >> MR. PRESIDENT, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, ALL OF US I'M SURE ARE
00:53:16 EXCEPTIONALLY PROUD OF BIANCA AND THE LONG AND SUCCESSFUL JOURNEY
00:53:22 FROM DRUG ADDICTION AND CRIMINALITY AND THE INSPIRING ROLE THAT
00:53:27 SHE PLAYS IN TODAY IN WORKING WITH YOUNG PEOPLE.
00:53:31 CHICAGO NEEDS MORE ROLE MODELS LIKE HER TO INSPIRE AND MOTIVATE
00:53:35 AND POINT THE COMPASS IN A FORWARD DIRECTION FOR YOUNG PEOPLE.
00:53:40 I'M PROUD TO JOIN THE MAYOR AND ALDERMAN CAPULMAN WHO SPOKE ON
00:53:47 THIS AND I WOULD ADD MY FEW WORDS TO HER DEEDS. SHE'S BATTLED AND
00:53:59 LONG ROAD OF HEROIN AND NARCOTICS.
00:54:03 SHE'S AN OUTREACH SPECIALIST AND VIOLENCE INTERRUPTER IN THE FAR
00:54:09 NORTH SIDE COMMUNITIES.
00:54:11 SHE HAS A SIMPLE MESSAGE AND A WORD OF ADVICE FOR ALL WHO SEEK HER
00:54:16 GUIDANCE AND SPIRITUAL COUNSELING.
00:54:23 HARD WORK AND DEDICATION IS NECESSARY FOR SUCCESS. SETTLE FOR
00:54:29 NOTHING LESS, THESE ARE HER WORDS IN THE PLATFORM. SHE TELLS US WE
00:54:34 MUST DO BETTER FOR OUR CHILDREN AND MUST TEACH OUR YOUTH TO LOVE
00:54:39 ONE ANOTHER AND WE MUST BE THAT EXAMPLE FOR POSITIVE BEHAVIOR.
00:54:45 THESE ARE IMPORTANT WORDS TO LIVE BY AND SPOKEN FROM A BRAVE WOMAN
00:54:52 WHO CAME FROM DARKNESS INTO LIGHT.
00:54:54 IT SHOULD BE A MOTIVATION FOR ALL WHO SEEK THE REDEMPTION OF LIFE
00:55:01 AND FREE FROM THE CHOKE HOLD OF THIS LIFE. HEROIN USE IS A DEADLY
00:55:10 EPIDEMIC.
00:55:11 SHE SURVIVED A 17-YEAR HEROIN ORDEAL. SHE LIVED IN AN ABANDONED
00:55:17 BUILDING AND LOST CUSTODY OF HER CHILDREN. WHEN YOU REACH ROCK
00:55:20 BOTTOM, THERE IS NO WHERE ELSE TO GO BUT UP.
00:55:23 IF YOU BELIEVE THERE IS A BETTER WAY, YOU CAN SUCCEED.
00:55:27 CERTAINLY YOU HAVE PROVEN BEYOND A SHADOW OF A DOUBT BY YOUR OWN
00:55:33 EXAMPLE, BETTER OUTCOMES IN LIFE, ARE INDEED ATTAINABLE.
00:55:37 NOW YOU ARE HELPING OTHERS TO FIND THEIR ON WAY IN LIFE.
00:55:43 THE MAYOR, INDEED ALL THE PEOPLE OF CHICAGO EXPRESS THANKS TO YOU
00:55:47 FOR ALL THAT YOU DO IN THE GENEROUS PERSON THAT YOU ARE.
00:55:55 GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY AND CONTINUE IN THE WORK THAT YOU
00:56:02 DO.
00:56:03 [ APPLAUSE ]
00:56:04 >>MAYOR RAHM EMMANUEL: BIANCA, I SEE THE THREE BEAUTIFUL KIDS AND
00:56:06 THEY HAVE COME TO THE LIMIT OF THE CITY COUNCIL. GIVEN THAT YOUR
00:56:12 HUSBAND, IT'S THREE-ON-1 DEFENSE THERE.
00:56:15 SO, I'M GOING TO BE QUICK.
00:56:17 THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
00:56:20 WE ARE A BETTER CITY AND I WILL SEE YOU OUT THERE, BUT GIVEN

01:19:17 THIS SUBSTITUTE ORDINANCE IS DESIGNED TO RELIEVE TO LOW INCOME AND
01:19:24 HOMEOWNERS ABOUT THE PROPERTY TAX INCREASE.
01:19:28 THE HOMEOWNERS WHO HAS AN -- ADJUSTED GROSS INCOME UNDER $75,000 A
01:19:38 YEAR AND HAS A LEASEHOLD INTEREST THAT IS NOT A RESIDENTIAL
01:19:42 COOPERATIVE AND PROPERTY IN THE CITY THAT IS USED BY THE
01:19:45 INDIVIDUAL AS A PRIMARY PLACE OF RESIDENCE AND IS LIABLE FOR
01:19:50 PAYING REAL ESTATE TAXES ON THE PROPERTY WILL BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE
01:19:55 PROGRAM.
01:19:56 THE TAX RELIEF PROGRAM WILL BE ADMINISTERED BY THE DIRECTOR OF THE
01:19:59 OFFICE OF BUDGET AND MANAGEMENT AND ADDITIONALLY A SENIOR
01:20:06 HOMEOWNER WHO SATISFIES THE ABOVE REQUIREMENT AND WHOSE HOUSEHOLD
01:20:11 ADJUSTED GROSS INCOME IS LESS THAN $75,000 OR EQUALIZED ASSESSED
01:20:19 VALUE OF RESIDENCE IS EQUAL OR MORE, IF THEY MEET THE

01:20:41 TO SAY ABOUT THIS, YOUR HONOR.
01:20:43 >>MAYOR RAHM EMMANUEL: ALDERMAN LAURINO?
01:20:46 >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT.
01:20:48 I SUPPORT THIS ORDINANCE AND ALDERMAN ROSA AND ALDERMAN SMITH AND
01:20:56 AS WELL AS COUNCIL.
01:20:59 I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR THIS.
01:21:01 IT IS A GOOD AND DECENT STEP TO TRY TO GET SOME RELIEF FOR THOSE
01:21:06 IN OUR COMMUNITIES THAT ARE GOING TO BE IMPACTED MOSTLY BY THIS
01:21:10 PROPERTY TAX INCREASE.
01:21:12 WE ALL KNOW THAT A HOMEOWNERS EXEMPTION FROM SPRINGFIELD WOULD
01:21:17 HAVE BEEN A BETTER OPTION. SPRINGFIELD IS NOT ACTING ON ALMOST
01:21:21 ANYTHING. SO WE HAVE THE POWER TO DO A REBATE, NOT AN EXEMPTION.
01:21:27 I WOULD ENCOURAGE ALL OF THOSE TO SAY YES TO GET SOME RELIEF AND I
01:21:33 THANK MY COLLEAGUES AND YOUR STAFF, YOU, MR. MAYOR. GET SOME
01:21:38 RELIEF. IT'S NOT A HUGE STEP BUT A GOOD STEP TO HOMEOWNERS OUT
01:21:44 THERE THAT ARE STRUGGLING. I TOTALLY SUPPORT THIS ORDINANCE AND
01:21:47 THANKS FOR THE INTRODUCTION.
01:21:49 >>MAYOR RAHM EMMANUEL: ALDERMAN SMITH?
01:21:51 >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MR. PRESIDENT.
01:21:53 IT'S ALWAYS BEEN MY VIEW THAT A PROPERTY TAX RELIEF OUGHT TO BE
01:21:57 OFFERED.
01:22:00 IT HAS REACH TO THOSE SENIORS THAT HELP OUR NEIGHBORHOODS.
01:22:04 THIS PROGRAM ACHIEVES THAT AND WE ARE VERY PLEASED AT THAT, AND SO
01:22:09 I'M VOTING TO SUPPORT THIS REBATE AND HOPE THE REST OF THE COUNCIL
01:22:13 DOES AS WELL.
01:22:16 >>MAYOR RAHM EMMANUEL: ALDERMAN ROSA?
01:22:18 >> MR. MAYOR, I WANT TO APPLAUD YOU AND MY COLLEAGUES BECAUSE
01:22:23 AFTER 8 MONTHS, PROPERTY TAX RELIEF IS COMING FOR OUR WORKING
01:22:32 CLASS HOMEOWNERS, FOR OUR SENIORS, SOME MAY SNEEZE AT $250, BUT
01:22:37 MANY KNOW THAT'S A PAIR OF SHOES FOR THE SCHOOL YEAR, MONEY FOR
01:22:45 THE FOOD ON THE TABLE. THAT'S REAL MONEY.
01:22:48 NOW WE ARE MAKING SURE THAT WE DO OUR PART TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERY
01:22:53 HOMEOWNER IN OUR WARD APPLIES FOR THE DEADLINE AND RECEIVED THEIR
01:22:59 REBATE.
01:23:00 IT'S NOT EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED.
01:23:01 I WANTED A PROGRAM THAT WOULD HAVE COST BETWEEN $35-50 MILLION. I
01:23:06 WANTED TO SEE RELIEF FOR RENTERS.
01:23:08 WHILE I THINK WE CAN CONTINUE WORKING TOWARDS LONG-TERM AND
01:23:14 SUSTAINABLE TAX RELIEF.
01:23:15 WE NEED TO MOVE THIS FORWARD TODAY. I ASK MY COLLEAGUES TO JOIN ME
01:23:20 IN SUPPORTING THIS.
01:23:21 THANK YOU.
01:23:23 >>MAYOR RAHM EMMANUEL: ALDERMAN MITTS?
01:23:24 >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT, I TOO RISE IN SUPPORT OF THIS
01:23:27 ORDINANCE AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP AND THANK YOU TO THE
01:23:31 DEPARTMENT AS WELL.
01:23:32 THAT'S THE ONE THING I DO HEAR IN A COMMUNITY IS THE PROPERTY TAX.
01:23:38 SO HOPEFULLY I CAN STAY ON MY BLOCK BECAUSE I HAVE MY CONSTITUENTS
01:23:43 COMING TO MY HOME AND THEY ARE BLAMING EVERYONE FOR IT.
01:23:48 THAT'S JUST ONE PART OF IT.
01:23:50 HOPEFULLY WILL BE ABLE TO GET THE INFORMATION OUT TO THE COMMUNITY
01:23:55 THAT THE STAFF TO COME OUT FOR MEETINGS SO PEOPLE CAN UNDERSTAND
01:24:00 EXACTLY WHAT THE REBATE IS GOING TO DO AND HOW IT'S GOING TO HELP.
01:24:04 BUT EVERY A LITTLE BIT HELPS. I WANT TO THANK YOU.
01:24:10 >>MAYOR RAHM EMMANUEL: ANYBODY ELSE WISH TO THE RECOGNIZED? IF
01:24:14 NOT, ALDERMAN BURKE.
01:24:15 >> THANK YOU, YOUR HONOR.
01:24:19 I WOULD SAY THAT I THINK THE WORK THAT WENT INTO THIS WAS A
01:24:23 REMARKABLE EXAMPLE OF COOPERATION BETWEEN THE EXECUTIVE AND THE
01:24:26 LEGISLATIVE BRANCH AS A GOVERNMENT, BUT REALLY SHOWED THE MEMBERS
01:24:32 OF THE COUNCIL WHO INTRODUCED THESE ORDINANCES EARLIER WE ARE
01:24:37 WILLING AND OPEN TO CHANGE AND I THINK THE FINAL PRODUCT SHOWS
01:24:45 THAT.
01:24:46 I WAS THE AUTHOR OF THE LAST REBATE ORDINANCE I BELIEVE IN 1999.
01:24:52 IT DIDN'T WORK VERY WELL BECAUSE THE MESSAGE DIDN'T GET OUT.
01:24:56 SO THIS TIME IT'S GOING TO BE INCUMBENT UPON ALL OF US, NOT ONLY
01:25:04 THE EXECUTIVE BUT THE LEGISLATIVE BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT TO DO AN
01:25:09 OUTREACH TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYONE WHO IS ELIGIBLE OF THE REBATE
01:25:15 AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT. WE DON'T HAVE A LOT OF TIME.
01:25:18 IT'S GOING TO BE NECESSARY TO GEAR UP FOR THIS, BUT THERE IS NO
01:25:23 DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT THE CITY HAS THE CAPACITY OF DOING THAT.
01:25:27 SO, YOUR HONOR, UNLESS THERE IS OBJECTION I WOULD MOVE TO
01:25:33 RECOMMEND TO THE COMMITTEE BY THE SAME ROLE CALL ON THE AGENDA
01:25:39 WITH THE SAME MOTION TO BE RECONSIDERED.
01:25:42 >>MAYOR RAHM EMMANUEL: HEARING NO OBJECTION, SO ORDERED.

02:03:30 I HAVE A REAL PROBLEM WITH THIS ORDINANCE. I WANT TO LET MY
02:03:35 COLLEAGUES KNOW, GIVE THEM SOME FACTS ABOUT THIS.
02:03:38 WILL THE WELL INTENDED WAVING A $30 FEE WHICH $30 MEANS NOTHING
02:03:46 NOWADAYS.
02:03:47 $10 OF GAS DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU LIVE OR LESS, A COUPLE PACKS OF
02:03:52 CIGARETTES. I NEVER THOUGHT $30 WAS ENOUGH. IT SHOULD BE $50.
02:03:58 THESE ARE PRETTY GOOD JOBS PEOPLE ARE APPLYING FOR.
02:04:04 ON-THE-JOB THEY WILL MAKE ROUGHLY 6 FIGURES.
02:04:09 APPLICANTS FOR THESE TEST LIVE OUTSIDE THIS CITY. WE ARE GIVING
02:04:16 THEM A BREAK.
02:04:18 ONCE THEY BECOME POLICE OR FIREMEN, ARE WE GOING TO PAY FOR THEIR
02:04:25 EQUIPMENT? THIS IS $1 MILLION FOR THESE TEST.
02:04:29 THESE COME EVERY YEAR WHETHER WE NEED THEM OR NOT.
02:04:33 POLICE COME VERY FREQUENT IN THE COMING YEARS.
02:04:35 THAT IS WHAT WE ARE FOCUSING ON IN THE NEXT YEAR.
02:04:40 WE GO THROUGH 5 PEOPLE TO GET TO 1 PERSON. FOUR OUT OF FIVE DON'T
02:04:46 MAKE IT TO BECOME A POLICEMEN.
02:04:48 WE HEAR RAISE MONEY BY DOING THIS OR THAT AND NOW WE ARE TAKING
02:04:54 THE WAY I LOOK AT IT MAYBE $30 A PERSON, 15,000 PEOPLE ARE SIGNING
02:05:03 UP FOR THESE TEST, WE ARE TAKING HALF A MILLION DOLLARS OFF THE

02:05:10 I WOULD ASK TO GIVE YOU THE OPPORTUNITY FOR PEOPLE WHO CHOOSE NO
02:05:13 THE TO SUPPORT THIS.
02:05:14 I WANT TO BE RECORDED AS VOTING NO.

02:05:33 >> MR. PRESIDENT, BRIEFLY, THE PEOPLE OF OUR HUMAN RELATIONS

02:05:43 ADVERTISING FOR POLICE APPLICANTS IN THE HISTORY OF THIS CITY AND
02:05:45 IN FACT HAD A GREAT NUMBER OF APPLICANTS APPLY GREATER THAN MOST
02:05:51 IN RECENT MEMORY, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT THEY NOTICED WAS THE
02:05:56 ONLINE APPLICATIONS THERE WAS A SIGNIFICANT DROP OFF AMONG AFRICAN
02:06:02 AMERICAN AND PEOPLE OF COLOR DURING THE APPLICATION PROCESS AT A
02:06:07 POINT WHERE THEY HAD TO PUT IN A CREDIT CARD AND PAY THE $50.
02:06:15 THE ALDERMAN IS RIGHT, THESE TEST COST US.5 MILLION.
02:06:28 THAT COUPLE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS WOULD HAVE ENABLED PEOPLE
02:06:33 FROM TAKING THE TEST AND WHO MIGHT HAVE BEEN POLICE OFFICERS.
02:06:36 THE ADMINISTRATION AND PEOPLE IN HUMAN RESOURCES FELT IT WAS AN
02:06:45 UNNECESSARY IMPEDIMENT.
02:06:46 THEY RECOMMENDED THE MATTER BE WAVED.
02:06:49 IT WAS WELL RECEIVED BY THE COMMITTEE AND VOTED UPON UNANIMOUSLY.
02:06:55 UNLESS ANYONE ELSE WOULD LIKE TO BE HEARD ON IT, I WOULD MOVE ON
02:07:01 THE PASSAGE OF THE OMNIBUS WITH THE EXCEPTION OF MR. SPOSATO WHO
02:07:09 VOTED NO.
