Seventh Ward Alderman Sandi Jackson has resigned her position effective today, according to the mayor's office.
"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," wrote Mayor Emanuel.
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.
