Former alderman Oberman elected as new Metra chairman

The Metra board held a special meeting today to choose a new chairman.

Former Chicago Alderman Martin Oberman was elected as Metra’s new chairman by a unanimous vote.

The other candidates were former CTA executive John Plante, and Village President of Lemont Brian Reaves.

Brad O’Halloran,┬áMetra’s previous chairman, resigned in August after an outcry over the exit of Alex Clifford as CEO of the nation’s second-busiest commuter rail agency.
