Okay, so maybe you are Jack Requa, and maybe WMATA’s Board of Directors did appoint you acting general manager to replace
Interim ex-General Manager Dan Tangherlini, but that don’t mean we like you.
Dan was our man. No matter if he wasn’t a classic interim GM, we loved him anyway.
He made things happen, made riders and workers feel respected, and set a might high bar, Jack.
Good luck in reaching it, good luck in even trying. I say make your life easy, stab Chris Zimmerman, the NoVA Board Member who lost Tangherlini, and stab him right in the chest with juicy scandal.
Yes, you’ll get fired fast, but you’ll have the respect and love of every single WMATA stakeholder, and who knows.. Fenty is hiring all the best!
