The deadline to apply to become Chicago’s next 7th Ward alderman has been extended.

The mayor’s office had received 42 online applications by Friday but decided to extend the deadline to 5 p.m. Monday because of some technical problems with the website.

Also, Mayor Rahm Emanuel has named five people to a committee that will narrow the group of applicants and send their recommendations to Emanuel.

The screening committee members include a community activist, a church pastor and and a longtime 7th Ward resident.

The mayor plans to meet with them Monday.

Emanuel must select someone to replace Sandi Jackson, who resigned from the 7th Ward Alderman position.
