Mayor Daley Visits 25th Ward on Ward Appreciation Tour

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Business Alderman Danny Solis (25 Ward) joined Mayor Richard M. Daley, Chicago Transit Board Chairman Terry Peterson, CTA President Richard L. Rodriguez, and several community representatives Saturday to honor the completion of renovations to the CTA Red Line Cermak-Chinatown station. This was Mayor Daley’s last official visit to the 25th Ward as part of his Neighborhood Appreciation Tour. Community members came in full force to support the work of Mayor Daley and Alderman Solis in improving all of the neighborhoods of the City of Chicago. “Working together we’ve brought Chicago into the 21st century, and given it a bright future. It’s been a joy and an honor to be your Mayor,” Daley said. In addition to installing a new elevator and replacing the stairs and escalator, CTA built a new station house at street level on Cermak and installed planters and posts that add to the ambiance outside the station. Other amenities include enhanced lighting, new customer assistance and information kiosks and bike racks. “This is a great improvement to our Ward and our neighborhoods. Thank you, Mayor Daley, for your service and unending dedication to this great city,” said Ald. Solis.
