Chicago Urban League president and former Blago aide Cheryle Jackson is looking for a clean start and a national office. She wants to leave behind her days as a spokeswoman for the embattled governor.
Jackson embarked on a statewide train-traveling campaign in mid-October, after leaving her position as director of the Chicago Urban League.
The main issues on her agenda are a reform of the healthcare system (which might already be in place by the time the elections come around), improving the education system and fighting for women’s rights.
