Recently, we held a live chat with Marcel Acosta, one of the two new federal members of the WMATA Board. Tomorrow, we’ll chat with the other, Mort Downey, the principal (voting) federal member.
Mr. Downey was U.S. Deputy Secretary of Transportation under President Clinton, Executive Director and CFO of the New York MTA, and is now a transportation consultant.
As a federal representative and someone who doesn’t work for a public agency or elected official, we’re hopeful he has the freedom to speak his mind on WMATA.
Post any questions you’d like to ask Mr. Downey in the comments. We’ll try to get to as many of them as possible during our noon chat tomorrow, Wednesday, March 17th, 2010.
