O'Malley Spokesman: Sarles Chosen As Metro General Manager

Play associated audio

It's looking more and more like Metro's new general manager will be the same as its current one.

A spokesman for Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley said that Metro's board of directors informed him that it will choose Richard Sarles as its new general manager. Sarles has been serving as interim general manager for almost a year –- ever since his predecessor John Catoe resigned.

The O'Malley spokesman, Shaun Adamec, says the Metro board has informed O'Malley, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray of its choice, and he says the governor approves.

Thus far, however, the Metro board is staying silent on the topic.

The choice of Sarles is somewhat surprising, given that when he was hired 10 months ago, Sarles was adamant he was not a candidate for the permanent job.
