Airport, Illiana Expressway top county’s agenda

Author: Editor

Will County Board Speaker Herbert Brooks Jr., D-Joliet, thinks a south suburban airport will create much-needed jobs as well as make air travel more convenient to those living in the area.

“I can’t wait to buy my first ticket,” Brooks said.

The proposed construction of the south suburban airport near Peotone is one of the top issues in the 2014 state legislative agenda the Will County Board recently approved. Brooks said the board “as a whole” supports the construction of the south suburban airport.

Vallas, a $1,200-a-day state consultant until last summer who ran the city’s schools from 1995 to 2001 and narrowly lost the 2002 Democratic primary for governor, was a little-known finalist on Quinn’s short list of running-mate possibilities.
