DOT Commissioner Kate Ascher: "It’s not happening. It’s not possible. That information is incorrect."
DOT Commissioner Joan McDonald: "It’s a very complicated agency, a huge bureaucracy with lots of moving parts and serious work to be done. If they took someone who has been here before, already had knowledge of the agency and who has a flexible approach and is sympathetic to pedestrian, traffic-calming and livable streets issues, that’d be ideal. That’s Joan."
DOT Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan: "She’d be great and if it were offered and if she were really given a mandate, I bet she’d take the job, though, you’ve got to think it would be a serious pay cut."
DOT Commissioner Emily Lloyd: Sources aren’t saying anything!
DOT Deputy Commissioner for Traffic Operations Michael Primeggia (above): "He still makes all of the decisions. You might disagree with some of them but he takes things seriously and works hard. He’s not a bureaucrat."
