Applications accepted online for Sandi Jackson replacement

Mayor Emanuel is accepting online applications for people who want to replace Alderman Sandi Jackson in the 7th Ward.

Jackson stepped down Tuesday, citing family matters.

Emanuel says he’ll name a four-person panel next week to go through candidates.

The website will be up tomorrow to accept applications.

One requirement is a record of community involvement and engagement.

Sources tell the Tribune the mayor will be cautious of appointing anyone linked to either the Jackson or Beavers families.

Cook County Commissioner William Beavers is charged with failing to pay taxes on campaign funds that he used for personal expenses.
