“(1/6) I’d like to address the recent @wmata delays that have deeply disappointed & angered me while frustrating many of you.
(2/6) First, @wmata (an independent, regional agency) despite facing budget pressures, needs to do better.
(3/6) @wmata is critical to our regional economy & getting to work/school on time is essential to your livelihood.
(4/6) As the District’s leader, I am continuing to work with @wmata to build a long-term capital plan that serves DC & the region.
(5/6) However, I do not serve on the board or have any operating authority over @wmata.
(6/6) Your #Metro board rep is @MurielBowser; I urge you to share your disappointment w/ her & GM/CEO Sarles as they make improvements.”
