DuPage Appointment Process Neither Transparent or Open

"We at DuPage County believe that sunshine is fundamental to government operations, and for that reason we have created the  ACT Transparency Portal . "
"As we intensify our efforts to transform local government under the DuPage ACT Initiative, I invite you to submit an application to be part of the Citizens Service Team. To open the application for appointment simply click "Nominate yourself for a board/commission" on the top right side of this page under Citizens Service Team."

The Chicago Tribune Reports:
DuPage County Chairman Dan Cronin has selected a former County Board member to fill a vacant seat on Metra's beleaguered board, bypassing at least two residents who applied for the post but said they were not interviewed.

You can read the full story here.

You can find more information herehere and here.

Will Mr. Swimmer be granted an interview after the fact as well?

How many other citizens took time to fill out an application only to be ignored?
