Mayor Emanuel names new chief of staff

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

A former budget official and aide to former Chicago Mayor Richard Daley will take over later this month as Mayor Rahm Emanuel's new chief of staff.

Lisa Schrader, 41, will replace Theresa Mintle. She resigned last week after two years on the job.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports Schrader was a spokeswoman for the budget office under Daley, who retired in 2011 after 22 years. She then worked as deputy budget director, deputy chief financial officer and moved up to deputy chief of staff.

In Emanuel's administration, she was chief operating officer. Schrader takes over her new job March 15.

Schrader grew up in Ohio and graduated from Miami University. She's also worked previously for the Democratic National Committee.

She tells the newspaper she's learned a lot from Emanuel.
