From the Encinitas Taxpayers Association blog:
NCTD: A New Chapter
NCT Transit district leader announces resignation
North County Transit District Executive Director Karen King announced Thursday she was resigning, at a meeting where the financially struggling district unveiled a proposed $91.3 million budget featuring fare increases and bus-route cuts.
King said she would leave the district June 20 to become chief executive officer of Golden Empire Transit District in Bakersfield, one day after news broke that three other top transit district managers had been laid off because of mounting financial problems.

King, who began her transit career 30 years ago as a bus driver in Utah, said the district's focus will be on operating the Sprinter, the Coaster train line between Oceanside and San Diego, and its Breeze bus system.
***Leucadia desperately needs someone at the NCTD helm who will put an end to the horrid scorched earth policy against us.
