Kankakee County's fight against the Great Lakes Basin Transportation (GLBT) rail project, which Rep. Lindsay Parkhurst (R-Kankakee) had called a "boondoggle in the making," is officially over following its rejection by the U.S. Surface Transportation Board (STB), County Board candidate Colton Ekhoff said on his Facebook page.
