Donoghue Wants Rider on Transit Board
East End City Councilor Kevin Donoghue says he wants someone who actually uses the City’s mass transit system to serve on the METRO Executive Board. The board has one seat reserved for a transit user, but that seat is currently held by the City’s Transportation Director Jeff Monroe.

Donoghue tried unsuccessfully to get the Portland City Council to delay the appointment at its January 3rd meeting. Councilor Jim Cloutier said that Monroe “has great zest for the board,” and Councilor Ed Suslovic also praised Monroe’s performance on the board.
