Former Chicago Mayor Eugene Sawyer dies

He also used to be alderman of the sixth ward before he was elected by the Chicago City Council as Mayor of Chicago back in 1987 after the death of Mayor Harold Washington. His bid for re-election was thwarted by the current Mayor Richard M. Daley in 1989. From the Chicago Tribune today.
