Cruz, Ramos fight against Elmhurst construction site
Democratic political candidates Catalina Cruz and Jessica Ramos stood in front of the trauma center at Elmhurst Hospital with staff from the facility July 5 claiming the increase in vehicular traffic from more residents could impede ambulance access to the medical institution.
“The safety of our community is paramount. I am immensely disappointed in the City Planning Commission’s vote to allow this proposal to move forward despite the groundswell of opposition by the community board, local residents, small business owners, and medical professionals. The EMT union, which represents the ambulance drivers working at Elmhurst Hospital, has publicly stated that this development will be an obstruction to their ability to save lives,” Cruz, who is running for the state Assembly seat.
