10 seek Baton Rouge bus system post
BATON ROUGE, La. - Applications have been received from 10 people seeking the temporary position to lead the Capital Area Transit System.
The Advocate reports the group includes former employees of the system, known as CATS, a former Baton Rouge mayoral candidate and the former general manager of the New Orleans bus system.
System CEO Brian Marshall resigned in April. He had faced growing criticism for not moving quickly enough to meet bus service goals promised in a 2012 tax election.
CATS Board President Isaiah Marshall says a temporary CEO would lead the agency for up to nine months to lead the agency while a nation search for a permanent leader is conducted.
