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.
