voted Chicago mayor
CHICAGO (AP) - Veteran Sawyer was elected at 4:01 a.m.,
Black City Council member Eugene climaxing a chaotic 19 hours of
Sawyer was sworn in yesterday as politcal intrigue. Ten council mem-
acting mayor of Chicago. He was bers reported death threats, an esti-
chosen to succeed the late Harold mated 5,000 protesters mobbed City
Washington in a raucous 6 and one- Hall and a lawsuit was filed in an
half-hour City Council meeting unsuccessful bid to stop the coun-
amid charges of a return to machine cil's selection of an acting mayor.
Sawyer, elected with support
from old-guard whites, immediately
vowed that Washington's reform
movement "shall remain intact and
go forward. It will continue
untainted by special interests fro the
rich and powerful."
But some allies of the city's first
black mayor predicted that Sawyer
would revert to the old-style crony-
ism and dealing during his 1 7
months as acting mayor.
He defeated Tim evans, a Black
council member who had been
Washington's floor leader, by a vote
of 29-19 with two abstentions in the
50-member council. Voters will
elect a mayor in April 1989 to serve
until 1991, finishing out Washing-
ton's second term.
Washington, who died of a heart
attack last week, had after years of
battle with old-guard whites forged a
majority on the council.
