Illinois Tollway Top Leader Resigns

A top leader for the embattled Illinois Tollway has resigned.  Jose Alvarez submitted a letter of resignation yesterday, just weeks after tollway board chairman Will Evans departed.  Alvarez said he stepped down to “prioritize his family’s needs and to afford the new chairwoman the opportunity to establish new leadership.”  He and Evans were handpicked by Governor J.B. Pritzker in early 2019.
