Congrats Ald. Lyle

She was elected chairman of the city Democratic party today according to the Sun-Times.
So much for cigar-chomping party bosses slating Democratic candidates in Cook County.

From now on there'll be a woman at the front of that smoke-filled room.

Ald. Freddrenna Lyle (6th) was elected city chairman of the Cook County Democratic Party on Wednesday, replacing Cook County Commissioner William Beavers.

Beavers was forced to relinquish the post he has long held because he is no longer a ward committeeman. He was defeated Feb. 5 by Ald. Sandi Jackson (7th), wife of Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Il.)
I found this first among the Capitol Fax Morning Shorts today.
