Former Mell aide selected for legislative seat

CHICAGO (AP) — A onetime aide to former Chicago Alderman Dick Mell will replace his daughter in the Illinois Legislature.

Jaime Andrade Jr. (HY’-may ahn-DRAH’-day) will take the seat held by Deborah Mell. She left the Illinois House to replace her father on Chicago’s city council when he retired after nearly 40 years representing the ward on the northwest side.

Andrade was selected by ward committeemen to represent the 40th District. Dick Mell is still the powerful Democratic committeeman for his ward.

Andrade spent more than a decade working as an assistant for the elder Mell. He was selected over two other candidates.

The 40-year-old tells the Chicago Sun-Times that his legislative priorities will focus on education and housing.
