Stood Up

Posted by on August 26 at 15:24 PM

Two members of the news team walked downtown today to meet the monorail’s new director, John Haley - a consultant who’s being paid more than $38,000 a month to figure out a way to turn around the troubled agency. After sitting for nearly half an hour in the SMP’s depressingly empty waiting room, we were greeted by SMP spokeswoman Natasha Jones, who told us she was very sorry, but Haley was out of the office - meeting with Sound Transit director Joni Earl. What he was doing hanging out at the rival transit agency is anybody’s guess - asking for money, perhaps?
