CHICAGO EAST – The city council started its first meeting of the year by electing its leaders for 2021.

Councilor Emiliano Perez, D-at large, was the sole presidential candidate and was elected by a 7-1 vote.

Perez has served on the council since 2017 and is the city’s former fire chief.

He served as Mayor Anthony Copeland’s chief of staff before joining the council, but has since become a frequent critic of the mayor.

“I want to thank all my colleagues for the trust they have placed in me,” said Perez. “I will work hard to make sure this advice moves forward gradually and respectfully with everyone in mind.”

Perez said he hopes for an open dialogue between the board and the administration.

Councilor Robert Garcia, D-5e, was the only running mate and was also elected by a 7-1 vote.

Garcia served as chairman of the board in 2020, but now takes on the role that city councilor Terence Hill, D-3e, held last year.

“I want to thank everyone for their support,” Garcia said. “I know last year has been a pretty busy year.”

Hill arrived late for the meeting and was not present for either of the two votes. Councilor Gilda Orange, D-6e, voted no both times.
