Why Hasn’t Mayor Bloomberg Announced Her Replacement?

Department of Transportation Commissioner Iris Weinshall’s last day on the job is this coming Friday, April 13.

  • Joe K.

    Hizzoner is stuck in traffic.

  • anon

    If Friday the 13th passes and there’s still no announcement, who do we get as the Acting commish?

  • Joe K.

    Freddy Kruger’s cousin, Carl.

  • I think then we can assume that the April Fools day exclusive Streetsblog announcement is true…. at least until Earth Day (April 22nd), when the Mayor makes that announcement official!

  • UGS

    Appoint the “Ungrateful liberal scum” retired cop guy. He’ll know exactly what to do…

  • jimbob

    anon: The First Deputy Commissioner (Judith Bergtraum) becomes the Acting Commissioner.

  • Don’t know, but this qualifies as the shortest write up in Streetsblog history.
