Oh Metro!

Metro Director Fired

It's been sad to watch the slow decline of DC's metro system. A good portion of that decline was presided over by Richard White who's been running Metro since 1996. Broken Escalators, trains that are overcrowded and don't run on time, track fires, etc. For years, Mr. White and the Metro Board have complained about funding problems. Of course, as a public employee Mr. White (and his failed tenure at Metro) isn't going unrewarded. He'll get:

A severance payout of $238,000
Health insurance
$116,000 a year pension for life, and his wife will get $58,000 for her life upon his death.
oh and Free Metro passes for life too

Not too shabby for 9 or so years of service.
