Muni chief in limbo as Washington group again postpones decision 

The waiting game continues — again — for Muni’s executive director.

A Washington D.C.-based group rumored to by eyeing Muni’s Nathaniel Ford to run its airport transportation system decided Wednesday to postpone a decision on whether to hire a new executive director.

For the last month, Ford has been the clear favorite to take over the top role at the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. The agency’s Board of Directors declined to take action on a new hire at its meeting on March 2, and again put off the decision at a special conference Wednesday morning in Washington, D.C.

The board issued a statement that could indicate its search for an executive director will continue considerably longer — leaving Ford and Muni in limbo.

“The Board has decided to postpone a decision on the Executive Search at this time. We have new members of the Board and would like them to participate in the process.”

MWAA spokesman Rob Yingling could not add further comment to the statement.

Ford is actually in Washington, D.C., right now for a legislative conference. He is expected to return to San Francisco later this week.
