Houston Politics: METRO covers its coverage

THE CHRON HOUSTON POLITICS BLOG notes that METRO’s bloated media relations/PR department regularly produces an in-house assessment of media coverage of the transit organization.

It would be nice to know how much this level of detail costs taxpayers, but that wasn’t part of the post.

METRO critic Paul Magaziner asked us why METRO board members like automobile huckster George DeMontrond allow the organization to divert precious resources to analysis like this, as opposed to spending as much as possible on transit for area residents.

Good question!

We look forward to Mayor Parker restocking METRO’s board (and administration) with some folks outside of the usual “Houston Way” network, which has served Houston transit users poorly over the last 12 years.
