Ousted Metra CEO to appear before RTA board
The recently ousted CEO of Metra will appear before the Metra board to face questions about his departure.
Alex Clifford got a $700,000 buyout when he left.
He claimed he was fired because he refused to cave in to pressure to hire patronage workers.
Clifford refused to attend a meeting of state lawmakers last week to explain his firing.
But he’ll appear before Metra trustees Wednesday.
