Not all aldermen, however, are so connected to the Plan to End Homelessness. Sposato, whose far northwest side ward is located in Montclare and Galewood (Lawrence to the North, Austin to the East, North Avenue to the South, Des Plaines River to the West), said in a phone interview that his ward barely has any homeless. He recalls one guy who “stood around” and a couple of panhandlers, but that was it.
When asked about economic and racial segregation, Sposato said, “I don’t know how you move people. You just can’t pick the people up and move them.”
