GRAND CROSSING — While visiting a new grocery store located in a South Side food desert Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Saturday he would now sit down to come up with a formula to choose a replacement for Ald. Sandi Jackson (7th), who announced Friday that her resignation would become effective Jan. 15.

“I will sit down today and come up with a process that will help me identify the best person for the job,” Emanuel told DNAinfo.com Chicago. “This is not an easy decision and one that I do not take lightly, so I cannot give you a timetable on when I will make my decision.”
