Quinn makes appointments to boards, commissions

CHICAGO — Gov. Pat Quinn has named a Chicago lawyer to the Illinois Commerce Commission.

Sherina Maye has focused on consumer finance litigation, and Quinn's office says her background will be "invaluable" as a watchdog for Illinois consumers.

Her appointment was one of more than two dozen that the governor's office announced on Monday.

Quinn also appointed a former machinists union business executive, Roger Poole, to the Illinois Finance Authority. Kane County board member Cristina Castro and Bloomingdale attorney Salvatore Tornatore were appointed to the Illinois housing Development Authority.

University of Chicago Law School professor Craig Futterman was among three appointed to the state's Torture Inquiry and Relief Commission. Futterman has extensively studied police brutality.

Quinn also named university trustees and public guardians, among other executive appointments.
