Whitburn Loses Ground at MTS

View descriptionShare

More uncertainty looms over the Metropolitan Transit Agency.

In this episode, we discuss this week's votes at MTS to try to install a permanent board chair after the Nathan Fletcher scandal. San Diego City Councilman Stephen Whitburn, in Fletcher's absence, is acting chair.

But no one got enough votes to clinch the gig. 

It was a harsh rebuke of Whitburn by his Council colleagues — two of whom sit on the board, and one acting as an alternate for the mayor, voted against him. Per MTS rules, Whitburn will be interim chair for another month before voting resumes.

Plus: San Diego City Councilman Kent Lee asks a lot of questions about the homeless camping ordinance. And reporter Will Huntsberry lays out his new investigation.
