Tuesday, April 22, 2008
Special to suffredin.org

Due to statutory changes approved by the Illinois State Legislature, four suburban Cook County Metra Board Members will now be appointed by suburban Cook County Commissioners. Board Members serve as the Board of Directors for Metra and individually represent four districts in Cook County as well as collar counties in the metropolitan Chicago region.

One Cook County Metra Board Member will be from the north and west suburban Cook County, from the townships of Evanston, Niles, Maine, New Trier, Northfield, Leyden, Norwood Park, River Forest, or Oak Park. Appointments will be voted upon by Commissioners Earlean Collins, Elizabeth Gorman, Gregg Goslin, Anthony Peraica, Peter Silvestri and Larry Suffredin based on their proportionate registered voters in the district.

In order to provide a fair and equitable process the Commissioners are accepting letters of intent and resumes from any interested residents residing in the following Cook County townships: Evanston, Leyden, Maine, New Trier, Niles, Northfield, Norwood Park, Oak Park and River Forest.

Letters of intent, with accompanying resume, may be forwarded to:

Commissioner Larry Suffredin
Cook County Building
118 N. Clark St., Ste. 567
Chicago, IL. 60602.

Letters of intent and resumes will be accepted until May 1, 2008. There will be a meeting on May 7, 2008 at which time applicants will be interviewed and a final selection made. The meeting will come to order at 3:00 p.m. in the Cook County Board Room, located in Room 569 at 118 N. Clark Street in Chicago.
