Emanuel plans to replace Sandi Jackson soon
With Alderman Sandi Jackson stepping down, Mayor Emanuel plans to swiftly replace her.
The 7th Ward alderman’s resignation takes effect tomorrow.
A spokesman says the mayor plans to name her successor early this week, though he has 60 days to do so.
He’s looking for someone with a history of community involvement on the south side.
Jackson is quitting less than two months after her husband resigned from congress amid a federal ethics probe and a diagnosis of bipolar depression.
