AC Transit GM David Armijo offered his
resignation Thursday, effective today.
AC TRANSIT | AC Transit General Manager David Armijo abruptly resigned Thursday after leading the day-to-day operations of the East Bay transit authority for three years.
A special meeting of the AC Transit Board of Directors scheduled for Friday was cancelled soon after Armijo resigned. There was widespread speculation Thursday afternoon that the seven-member board was going to fire Armijo on Friday.
AC Transit Board Director Elsa Ortiz said Friday’s special meeting was intended to discuss Armijo’s annual job evaluation. “We were going to discuss the evaluation and figure out what we wanted to do,” said Ortiz, “and then we found out he submitted his resignation.”
Ortiz declined to comment on the possible reasons for Armijo’s abrupt resignation, but added, “We wish him the best.”
