A group of Cook County commissioners want to continue the overhaul of the Metra Board by having some of the remaining members quit. According to the Chicago Sun-Times:
"Hours after Metra Board members unanimously elected an interim CEO, a group of suburban Republican Cook County commissioners announced it wants half of the remaining board to resign.
Metra Board members Don De Graff, Arlene Mulder and William Widmer III are targeted for replacement in a resolution to be considered by the full Cook County Board Sept. 11.
However, at least two — De Graff, the mayor of South Holland, and Mulder, the former mayor of Arlington Heights — indicated Tuesday they don’t plan on budging."
