Walder Out
July 21st, 2011

Metropolitan Transportation Chairman Jay Walder abruptly announced his resignation today. Walder is taking a position as CEO at the MTR Corporation in Hong Kong–the company provides rail service in Europe and Asia.

Walder was confirmed as head of the MTA during the Paterson administration and was thought very highly of for his work as finance director for Transport of London. Gov. Andrew Cuomo chose to keep Walder on when he began his administration.

I want to thank Governors Cuomo and former Governor Paterson for the honor of serving the people of New York State, Walder said in a statement The MTAs transportation system is the foundation of the metropolitan region and we are fortunate to have thousands of dedicated men and women who work so hard to provide these critically important transportation services to millions of people each and every day. I believe that we have accomplished quite a lot in a short period, with the support of two Governors, the Mayor, a hard-working Board and many others.

    They all have utensils by them, of coruse! Btw I stumbled across your site a while ago and fell in love with your Haute Dog / Venus illustration enough to put it as my phone’s wall paper. Not only does her mermaid-esque hair and puffy chewing cheek make me think she’s adorable but anyone who glances over my shoulder and sees cartoon boobs on my phone makes them smile and giggle too.She’s been great fun and a signed copy of your book would bring me many years of joy, blissful dry humor and just enough edge to keep my most modest friends blushing Cheers to a great style ~M
