SHARE Sneed scoop: Ray LaHood to lead search for new airport chief

Chicago Sun-Times columnist Michael Sneed has learned former U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood has been named by Mayor Rahm Emanuel to lead a task force searching for a new Chicago aviation commissioner tasked with running both Midway and O’Hare airports.

Current city aviation chief Rosemarie Andolino, whose 11 year tenure began during former Mayor Richard M. Daley’s regime, oversaw major runway and transit expansion at O’Hare International Airport as well as the construction of a new international cargo center. She told Emanuel last month she planned to step down this summer to move into the private sector.
