Congrats to Christof

Although I'm a few days late to the party, I'd just like to echo what Kuff and Andrew have said regarding Mayor Annise Parker's decision to name local engineer and Citizens' Transportation Coalition blogger Christof Spieler to the Metropolitan Transit Authority's Board of Directors.

Christof's knowledge of local transportation issues is solid and his desire for high-quality, user-friendly, multi-modal transportation in Houston is passionate and clear. I think he is an excellent addition to METRO's Board of Directors and I have faith that he, along with the other four new Board member the Mayor has appointed, will do what it takes to get the beleaguered agency "back on track," so to speak.

Wow. Compare and contrast to here. (I had a couple of my twitter/facebook followers ask me if I was going to apply for Cap Metro's board, as if they'd touch anybody knowledgeable about transit with a ten-foot-pole).
