After Bumpy Week, SFMTA Director Ed Reiskin Announces Resignation – April 29, 2019 – SF Weekly

By Nuala Sawyer :sfweekly – excerpt

Ed Reiskin plans to step down when his contract ends in August.

After an unfortunate week full of broken down trains, understaffing, and defective doors, the leader of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency announced his plan to resign. Ed Reiskin sent an email to employees of the SFMTA Monday morning announcing he’d step down from his position in August, when his contract ends.

Reiskin was appointed SFMTA director in 2011, and it’s no small task; he manages an operating budget of around $1 billion per year, and is responsible for 5,000 employees. It’s a stressful job, but he’s paid handsomely (and notably, more than the mayor), pulling in $405,747.30 in 2017. Before becoming SFMTA director he was the head of the city’s Department of Public Works.

Mayor London Breed will address the search for a new transportation director in a press conference at 1:30 p.m. Monday.

This is a breaking news story. Stay tuned for updates.(more)

  1. The fix to restructure sfmta board and mini leaders is in. This is the sole purpose for supposed problems going public. Not that any of them were good. But the worst is yet to come.
