Metra board member from DuPage County resigns

Posted: Updated:
WHEATON, Ill. (Associated Press) -

DuPage County Chairman Dan Cronin says he's accepted the resignation of Metra Board of Directors member Paul Darley.

Darley sent Cronin his resignation letter on Tuesday. In it, Darley cites calls from many asking for Metra board members to resign.

The commuter rail agency has been embroiled in legal problems since ousted CEO Alex Clifford left with a $718,000 separation agreement. Clifford has said he was forced out of the agency for resisting pressure from House Speaker Michael Madigan and others over jobs and construction contracts.

That's sparked a state investigation. Darley says he supports a comprehensive investigation and that Illinois taxpayers "have a right to know everything that took place at Metra."

Cronin says he "regretfully" accepted Darley's resignation.
