Deb Mell applies for dad’s aldermanic seat

Illinois State Rep. Deb Mell wants to take her father’s place as Chicago’s 33rd Ward Alderman.

Ald. Richard Mell retires on July 24. Deb Mell is one of 14 people to apply for the seat. The mayor’s office declined to release the other names of those who applied.

She says she’s qualified because her district includes some of the ward.

A search committee will remove unqualified applicants before selecting a group of finalists.

The mayor will then pick the new alderman from that group.

The Chicago Tribune contributed to this report.
