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.
