Dolton has a new mayor and she has plans for the south suburban community after being sworn in Saturday. Not only is she the first female mayor of Dolton, but also the youngest.
Tiffany Hanyard, 37, who was born and raised in Dolton, ran a campaign of change. She says she wants to focus on curbing crime and boosting the local economy. One of her first moves includes appointing Chief Collins, who resigned last year under the previous administration, as police chief.
"Crime has been on the rise for a long time in Dolton. I am bringing back Chief Collins. He is the new police chief-he has a new plan to fight crime, Henyard said.
I will be following new mayor, I think this is very interesting that a young woman is into politics. This is awesome!
