Speaker Madigan Admits to Letter Supporting Pay Raise for Metra Worker


House Speaker Mike Madigan admits that he sent a letter to Chicago mass-transit agency Metra, asking officials there to consider a pay raise for a Madigan associate.

 

But Madigan says he later withdrew the request after Metra officials expressed discomfort.

 

Madigan wrote the letter on behalf of Patrick Ward, who was earning $57,000 as a labor relations specialist.

 

The speaker says he has worked with Ward on a variety of projects over a 15-year period, but did not go into detail about the nature of that working relationship.
