There’s been a shakeup at the top of the Illinois Department of Transportation… but no one is saying why.
Ann Schneider has submitted her resignation as transportation secretary, effective next week. No reason was given for her departure.
She has been under fire recently after questions arose about whether her stepdaughter and other IDOT employees may have benefited from hiring practices that appeared to circumvent state patronage rules.
Governor Pat Quinn has named state Veterans Affairs Secretary Erica Borggren to replace Schneider.
