Muni Chief Nat Ford Is Here to Stay ... for Now
|Not going anywhere ... just yet|
Instead, Ford will be lugging his suitcases back from D.C. where he has been this week while transit officials there discussed whether or not to hire away Muni's chief executive.
Media outlets are reporting that Ford was not offered the job to head the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. After a closed-door meeting this morning, officials with the Washington transit agency emerged from the room only to tell him that they have decided to postpone making a decision.
The airports authority operates the Dulles International and Reagan national airports as well as a toll road and construction of a Metrorail extension.
A spokesman for the authority told reporters this morning that he couldn't answer that question just yet.
Ford, who earns $308,000 annually and has the highest salary on the city payroll, will resume his job in San Francisco.
