Council Resolution Co-Sponsored By Clerk Mendoza Honors the Dedication Chicago’s First Responders Displayed During Recent NATO Summit
Today the Chicago City Council unanimously approved a resolution co-sponsored by Mayor Rahm Emanuel, City Clerk Susana Mendoza and City Treasurer Stephanie Neely. The resolution honors the efforts of the City’s first responders and all who tirelessly worked to make the May 20 – 21 NATO summit a success.
“The NATO summit put Chicago in the spotlight, and we were shining bright,” said Clerk Mendoza. “I want to congratulate Mayor Emanuel for leading it beautifully and skillfully. Through the dedication and coordinated efforts of all our first responders and the Office of Emergency Management and Communications, we were able to showcase the best Chicago has to offer.”
“I know that first responders and their families made many sacrifices during this time. The bravery and poise displayed by our City’s heroes during this historical time is something we should all be proud of,” said Clerk Mendoza.
“This resolution is a small tribute and way of saying thanks to everyone who helped keep Chicago safe and displayed our great City to the world,” continued Mendoza. “There are thousands of people who spent tens of thousands of hours preparing for the largest NATO summit ever; people whose names we may never hear, but deserve much credit. The concerted efforts and hard work of all involved in the summit was evident throughout the weekend and led to its resounding success.”
