Sandi Jackson replacement choice expected soon

Mayor Emanuel’s choice to replace Sandi Jackson as 7th Ward Alderman is expected to come soon.

Emanuel’s spokeswoman says the mayor plans to announce his plans early this week.

He is reportedly looking for a replacement that has a history of community involvement.

The 7th ward’s political leadership has been hurt by the indictment of former Alderman William Beavers and Jackson’s resignation, which takes effect Tuesday.

Sandi Jackson resigned less than two months after her husband quit amid ongoing federal ethics probes into his campaign finances and a diagnosis of bipolar depression.

Mayor Emanuel has 60 days to name a replacement.
