Fear MTA chair could guide bus change

MTA Chairman Dale Hemmerdinger could unfairly influence controversial bus-route changes that would benefit the shopping mall his family owns in Queens, critics charged Wednesday.

 

But Hemmerdinger's son, who runs The Shops at Atlas Park in Glendale, insisted his powerful dad won't advocate for the stops at the upscale mall.

 

"He'll have nothing to do with it," snapped Damon Hemmerdinger, the mall's development director. "This is not about him."

 

Dale Hemmerdinger - president and co-owner of ATCO Properties, which owns the mall - was confirmed in October as chief of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

i thought the new chairman was Lee sander?

 

Colonel Sanders is the Executive Director/CEO. Hemroiddinger is the Chairman. What that means is Dingy gets the funds to run the system and to buy equipment for the system from Albany, while the Colonel makes the system run and deals with the internal part of the system (employees, service, etc....).
