Just Another Day In SouthLA
Phillip Washington, former CEO of Denver’s Regional Transportation District (RTD) was selected as the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Agency’s new chief executive officer, starting no later than May 29.
“There’s a lot of work to be done, and we will function as a team in doing it,” Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas said during a press conference at Metro on Thursday. “Phillip Washington’s experience in Denver of delivering projects on time and on budget is precisely what all of us have desired and expected, and we fully look forward to that happening here in Los Angeles as we move toward the implementation of Measure R.”
Washington said he was looking forward to delivering “the best possible transit experience and infrastructure for the LA area.”
