WMATA Update on General Manager Search

Metro 7000 series car
I heard this morning that apparently Mr. Cohen was quite upset that word had gotten out to the public about his hiring. Mr. Cohen has decided to have his name withdrawn because of this. Then why would you consider a guy like this to lead a public agency?

WMATA Board Chairman Mort Downey today issued the following statement:

“WMATA and Neal Cohen have mutually agreed that Mr. Cohen is no longer under consideration to become WMATA’s General Manager. The executive recruitment process to determine who will lead WMATA remains ongoing, and discussions with candidates are actively underway. For that reason, we will not comment further on the search, except to say that the Board remains committed to completing the process as quickly as possible.”
