Emeka Moneme, head of the District DOT, has resigned. Read David Alpert’s take on Moneme’s career at DDOT and on the critical nature of the decision now facing Mayor Fenty. The District’s resurgence and high gas prices have created an incredible opportunity for the city, and the head of DDOT will have a great deal to say about how we use that opportunity. Fenty can choose a business as usual guy, looking to speed traffic flow and improve commuter routes from the suburbs first. Or, he can choose someone who will focus on improving mobility within the city, capitalizing on our transit and design assets, and making streets attractive places for residents, including pedestrians and cyclists. Let’s hope he has the good sense to opt for the latter.
