Crime & Safety Postcard/Letter Writing Compaign – A Message from Alderman Reilly & Interview with WGN

Crime and Safety: Postcard Writing Campaign

A message from Alderman Reilly Ward 42: Reilly Reports 12/10/2021

Alderman Reilly is extremely frustrated with the ongoing criminal activity plaguing our City, and the lack of accountability from the Cook County Criminal Justice System. He is in constant communication with the Chicago Police Department (CPD) and Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s Office about crime in the Downtown neighborhoods.

All law enforcement agencies should work collaboratively to resolve the increase in crime. While CPD does great work, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s Office and Cook County Circuit Court Chief Judge Timothy Evans need to increase their efforts to hold criminals accountable.

We are asking residents to participate in a postcard/letter writing campaign to State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s Office and Chief Judge Evans to express concerns about the lack of accountability and releasing individuals accused of violent crimes on electronic monitoring.

The  42nd Ward Constituent Service Office located at 121 North LaSalle Street, Room 200 (Monday – Friday from 9am to 3pm) is currently out of postcards.  Drafting a letter is equally as effective.   Please CLICK HERE for sample postcard/letter language, mailing addresses, and more information about the campaign.
