How to make 'work' out of 'nothing'.
He's moving around all the other appointed for life managers I suppose to present some illusion that he is 'changing' something. The thing is, moving the same people around doesn't really change anything because they are the same people with the same ideas. It's all window dressing and we've seen it all before, many times actually.
One thing that becomes very clear when you read his memo, is how ridiculously bureaucratized Trimet really is. All these managers doing who knows what all day? Holy hell,so no wonder service is so terrible. All that money wasted on these manager positions when it could be used for direct services.
One thing I liked was Kelsey's use of the word "Trimet Brand". That's exactly what it is. Its a goddamn public relations triumph. Like Coke or Pepsi. It's completely artificially created via intense marketing strategies.
Nothing will change, it never does
