Emanuel replaces Chicago's Ethics Board

CHICAGO – A spokeswoman says Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel decided to replace the city's entire Board of Ethics because he wants "a board more in line with the priorities of the administration."

Spokeswoman Sarah Hamilton on Wednesday said the mayor asked three board members to resign. Another three members were serving on expired terms, and a seventh spot was vacant.

The board will be chaired by Stephen Beard. He's served as an executive and general counsel at an executive search firm called Heidrick & Struggles.

The other board members are: former Illinois Appellate Court Judge Michael Gallagher; former Cook County Circuit Court Judge Julia Nowicki; former Chicago budget official Russell Carlson; community development expert Fran Grossman; Community and Economic Development Association executive Daisy Lezama; and theologian Mary Trout Carr.
