Ald. Moreno statement on January EVA meeting

Dear EVA Board Members and General Membership:

Over this past weekend, I was informed that at the last meeting of the East Village Association (EVA), Jesse Juarez spoke and informed the body that he was representing me, the 1st Ward Alderman. I wanted to state strongly and unequivocally that I did not, and do not, empower Jesse Juarez to speak for me or my office on ANY issue, let alone the issue that was at hand at the last EVA meeting. I have spoken to Jesse regarding his behavior and let him know, emphatically, that he does not represent me in any way or fashion.

I realize the passion that exists within EVA regarding neighborhood issues and respect (both personally and in policy) that passion and the official decisions of EVA. As I have promised, I will continue to seek out EVA's opinion on ANY zoning change, liquor moratorium issue, and general development opportunities on EVERY legitimate proposal that crosses my desk.

I truly appreciate your time and dedication to our neighborhood and am proud to represent you as your Alderman.

Best,

Joe
