CHICAGO - Cook County, Ill.'s former chief financial officer Thomas Glaser - who last month joined the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn as an associate vice president in administrative affairs - will replace the retiring Thomas Ryan as vice president of administrative affairs and treasurer in early August.
Glaser most recently was serving as chief operating officer for Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas. Glaser had managed the county's finances for 11 years under former Board President John Stroger. After Stroger suffered a debilitating stroke, his son Todd Stroger, then a Chicago alderman, replaced his father on the November 2006 ballot and won the election. The elder Stroger has since died.
