    Just over a week ago, Ald. Patrick Daley Thompson (11) submitted his official letter of resignation from City Council as he was required to do after a federal jury found him guilty of lying to federal banking officials and filing false income tax returns. 

    Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced a plan on Wednesday to fill Thompson’s 11th Ward seat, a process over which she has final say. But in the interim, the 11th Ward is without an aldermen, and some of Thompson’s previously introduced legislation hangs in limbo without an aldermanic sponsor.
