Successor To William Beavers Could Be Chosen Thursday

Brookins said at least six potential candidates have submitted resumes to replace “The Hog with the Big Nuts” (Thankfully, none of those candidates is former County Board President Todd Stroger, who expressed an interest in the job.)
Beavers’s successor will be chosen based on weighted votes cast in his district during the 2010 elections, with Brookins’s ward holding the most weighted votes. Among the people lining up for Beavers’ job are Kenneth Sawyer, nephew of former Chicago mayor Eugene Sawyer; Brian Sleet, chief of staff to Ald. Roderick Sawyer; Nick Smith, an aide to 9th Ward Ald. Anthony Beale; and Stanley Moore, who unsuccessfully mounted a campaign for the Illinois Senate in 2008.
