Statement from Mayor Emanuel Regarding the Resignation of Alderman Sandi Jackson from City Council

Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

This afternoon I received a letter from Alderman Sandi Jackson tendering her resignation from City Council, effective January 15th.

As Sandi takes this time to focus on her family, we give her our deepest thanks and support for her service to our City and the residents of her ward.  Her leadership has been greatly appreciated in the Chicago City Council.

The process to identify a replacement for Alderman Jackson to serve and represent the residents of Chicago’s 7th ward will be announced early next week.
