Perry Asked to Ax Head of TXDOT

The Austin-American Statesman reports that Senator John Carona wants Rick Perry to replace Ric Williamson as the head of TxDot. Carona is the chairman of the Texas Senate’s transportation committee. (shouts to Sal Costello for spotting the article)

This quote says it all:

Sen. John Carona, R-Dallas, said Williamson’s “abrasiveness” and single-minded commitment to toll roads and privatization as the solution to traffic congestion “has worn out his welcome in many communities across the state.”

The article is a must read. With high-ranking officials in his own party calling for a change in TxDot leadership, maybe it’s time that Perry listens.
