The team includes Museum of Science and Industry CEO and McPier Chairman David Mosena, former Mayor Richard M. Daley aide Sarah Pang and former Illinois state Rep. Judy Erwin.
Emanuel also chose Felicia Davis, a former police officer who now works as vice president of administration at Kendall College, and Rev. Byron Brazier, pastor of the South Side megachurch, the Apostolic Church of God and son of the late Bishop Arthur Brazier.
Emanuel was moving ahead just two days after trouncing five rivals by getting 55 percent of the vote in Tuesday’s election.
