Neil Albert to Metro Board
Our colleague Lena Sun reports that Neil Albert, the deputy mayor for economic development, will be named by Mayor Adrian Fenty to a spot on the Metro Board of Directors. He replaces Emeka Moneme, the former D.C. transportation director who resigned to take a job at Metro.
Albert's appointment is viewed by some as a bid by the Fenty Administration to convince the board to move Metro's headquarters from its downtown location to a spot above the Anacostia Metro station in Southeast. Fenty has hoped to spark development in Ward 8 by getting Metro to relocate there, but Metro officials have been reluctant.
