View Comments ()



    Sharon Dixon is running for Congress.

    Chicago's 24th Ward Alderman Sharon Denise Dixon likes to call attention to something that Danny K. Davis said to her after she graduated from Manley High School in just 3 years.

    "You must have been the smartest one in Manley High School," Davis told her.

    Now she's looking to replace the man she revered.

    A graduate of UIC, Dixon entered into politics as a community activist, establishing the 16th-to-8th Street Central Park Avenue Block Club. Dixon won her 24th Ward aldermanic seat by a mere 192 votes during a run-off on April 17th, 2007.
