Sandi Jackson’s last day as 7th Ward Alderman

Tuesday is Sandi Jackson’s final day as Chicago’s 7th Ward Alderman.

Jackson’s resignation from the Chicago City Council officially takes effect on Tuesday.  She was first elected in 2007.

She leaves office less than two months after her husband, Jesse Jackson, Jr., resigned from Congress in the midst of a federal ethics investigation and a diagnosis of bipolar depression.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s office says the mayor will likely appoint a new alderman for the 7th Ward in the next day or two, even though he’s not required to fill the seat for 60 days.
