Tangherlini leaving Metro to return to District government

Today’s Post reports that Dan Tangherlini, interim GM of WMATA, is resigning to become City Administrator for the Fenty administration. In July it was announced that WMATA would be conducting a national search for a new CEO, which upset some riders who wanted Tangherlini to simply be rubber stamped into the Metro position.

Prior to his WMATA position, Tangherlini was in charge of the District’s transportation department.

    It’s a sad day at WMATA. When I read this article this morning, I was in shock – this post should be entitled: Say it ain’t so, Dan! Say it ain’t so..

    That said, I can’t wait for him to rock the District Government’s world. I only wish there were two Dans..

    Tangherlini was great at Metro, and it’s really a shame that the idiots on the managing committee didn’t snatch him up immediately. Now, though, ALL of DC gets to benefit from him, not just those near the subway & bus lines.
