The Chicago-area Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) has appointed Brian Sager to its board to represent McHenry County, Illinois.

Since 2005, Sager has served as mayor of Woodstock, Illinois. He has been on the Woodstock City Council since 1989.

Previously, he was a professor at McHenry County College, where he taught classes in animal and plant sciences and economics, RTA officials said in a press release.

Sager succeeds Blake Hobson, whose term expired in March. Sager’s appointment was effective May 1.

"[Sager's] professional experience in public service and higher education will be of great value to the region's transit system," said RTA Chairman Kirk Dillard.
