Mayor Daley today named a new School Board President.
Mary Richardson-Lowry will fill the seat left vacant when Michael Scott killed himself this fall.
Daley called the appointment bittersweet because Scott was a close friend of his, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Richardson-Lowry previously served as Daley’s building commissioner. She’s currently a lawyer with the firm Mayer Brown.
