District Department of Transportation director Gabe Klein is scheduled to give a statement at the Reeves Center at 10:15 this morning. The Post‘s Mike DeBonis is tweeting that several agency heads were booted yesterday, but he doesn’t know whether Klein was among them (Neibauer hears that DCRA’s Linda Argo and OCTO’s Brian Sivak got pink slips as well).
If he was, it looks like almost Mayor Vince Gray will have heard the pleas of the Committee of 100 and upper Ward 3 power players, as well as the folks at the Penn-Branch Citizens/Civic Association, all of whom sent letters asking that he be replaced (along with Office of Planning director Harriet Tregoning).
Of course, this could all just be Klein getting a bunch of media buzz to announce a new streetscape project or something. It’s been done before.
Anyway, see you there!
