Bob Nelson going back to New Mexico Mcfarlane hires fired Translink executive

Bye Bye Bob, you didn't do much did ya?
Good old Bob came back from New Mexico (I knew it was somewhere around there) because his buddy Neil Mcfarlane didn't want  to take responsibility for all the service failures anymore. Mcfarlane decided to create a brand new job called Deputy General Manager. As we know good old Neil did a hell of a lot of restructuring at Trimet. From my point of view (and others) Mcfarlane has been a disaster for Trimet. Service quality has gone down the tubes since Mcfarlane took over. Mcfarlane never had a clue how to run a transit system and all the old guard jumped ship over the last years leaving only Lomax behind. She's doing just as badly a job as the rest of them. Lucky for Mcfarlane and all his pals he (and them)  are  not held accountable for anything and the puppet Trimet board is finding as many ways as possible  to stuff Mcfarlanes's pockets on his way out. His contract is up next July, most likely will go away then and collect his huge pension and payoff. Maybe he can get a nice fat check from one of his crony contractors who he made BILLIONS for over his career at Trimet

Interestingly enough Mcfarlane has hired the ousted COO of Vancouver Metro's organization, Doug Kelsey. (and raised the salary of course)  Why is that interesting? Because Kelsey was thrown out of his job  because the public had lost faith in the transit system up in Vancouver . To make a long story short, the public didn't trust Kelsey so he had to go. You can read a couple of articles about Kelsey HERE and HERE and there is a video of the man below the break. He sure has the Canadian accent but does he have a green card?
