YAY! Now, make sure the next head of metro doesn't get a housing allowance. Also, the next head of metro should be an actual metro rider. Someone that not only knows the area, but the system and all of its problems......

Wow...I said less than three minutes ago, there needs to be changes in the management of Metro before any future funds effectively improve service. Someone must have been listening...finally. Hire me...I'll work for three times less, I already live in the area and won't require a housing subsidy, and I ride Metro every day.

Now metro can focus on spending it's money on improving the system instead of paying an incompetent general manager what he didn't deserve it and much more. Metro really has to better manage the money it has instead of wasting it on things like housing allowance. The new general manager has to concentrate on generating more funding for the metro and improving the safety and efficiency of the system. With Catoe it seems things went from bad to worse. I am sure metro can find a more qualified person for this job.

This is how I felt when Vinny Cerrato resigned.
