Emanuel names Sandi Jackson's successor to council
CHICAGO – Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has named a former Illinois Department of Transportation worker to replace Sandi Jackson on the City Council.
Emanuel said Natashia Holmes' appointment as alderman of the 7th Ward represents a "break from the past" and a "fresh start." He praised Holmes on Monday for a record of community engagement. She's a former IDOT special projects manager and community planner.
Sandi Jackson is the wife of former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr., who resigned in November citing ongoing treatment for bipolar disorder.
