Will County official Nick Palmer has been appointed by Gov. Pat Quinn to a blue ribbon task force that is looking into ways to improve the region’s troubled mass transit system.
“The governor’s move comes in the wake of recurring scandals at Metra and ongoing accountability problems over the last decade,” according to a press release Quinn’s office issued Thursday.
Palmer, 39, who grew up in Joliet and now lives in Bolingbrook, is chief of staff for Will County Executive Larry Walsh.
