Preckwinkle calls for Metra board member to resign
Yet another Metra board member may be forced to resign.
Stan Rakestraw was appointed by Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle to represent the county’s suburbs.
But a Chicago Tribune investigation reveals, Rakestraw lives in a luxury condo in Chicago so he’s ineligible for the Metra post.
Preckwinkle said Rakestraw used to live in Flossmoor.
He moved to Chicago two years ago when his house burned down.
Wednesday, Preckwinkle called upon him to resign.
