death spiral if you are takingek these passengers, these fares out of your finances and you ses up an even worse problemrobl financially for yourself? how do you that. >> two points.>> two 33 hours that we have to do worw it really the productive work is much lower than that.ch because when you get l out on te track it takes you about an houh and a half to set up what you do and an hour and a half to get down. do normal night if we're shuttingsn down at midnight and opening ata five we're getting two hours ofs true work.k. and again that's -- almost impossible to maintain and muchc less get at the backlog. bacog in terms of the financial impact, clearly there will be aa financial impact. you know, if uri ducing the service in effect. but i'm weighing that againstgan again both the safety and a reliability needs that we havee to solve.ve. so we cannot continue i thinke t what we've been doing for for decades and not addressing thata issue. is we have to take the costs nows both in terms of inconvenienceve for the customer, the financiali part of it, and but if
7:38 am
do this, in my estimation, we continue the path we've been ono for decades, and as the system s gets older by the minute, the conditions, you know, ares,ou k getting worse by the minute, you know, in my estimation you'reonu not going to get there.et tre so that's why, you know, i've ki come up with this plan. >> we want to talk about about accountability for minute l havt been many people, fta has said i it, they came out with bigit b statement on saturday, presideni obama has talk about this beingb aging infrastructure, althoughug compared to other markets likekk boston and new york it's not is really that old of a system. however, hearing from everybodyy up to the white house yououse y yourself have said that you have inherented a search al systemys that has had years of not beingb kept up to repair. so a lot can be said about we'lw make changes down the road, but, what about what's happened hapne already that's gotten this too this point whether it has led td injury or death or whether it'ss led to problems that now cost multiples to fix? what's? ha h
7:39 am
been anyone fired because of this? will there be,s there been anyone account for theor injuries or the death as far asa employees witness metro system,s and have you -- that is as happened yet and if not, will ii happen at some point in the future?u >> um, a few thing.m, aew thing some people have already lefteal that have come on board. last week i sent out note to basically roughly 13,0003, employees at the agency about 650 of them are managers and is sent out a note basically le letting them -- reinforce wagon my priorities are. i also just reminded them because some may not know it kw that they are at will employeese and that we have -- we have toev be able to be held accountableab across the board up and down.n. tomorrow, i am holding i believe the first time in agency'sy' history a meeting that has allll those management people there ae eting, and i will make itak i very clear both in terms of what my priorities are, what myt my
7:40 am
that, you know, we're running ai multi billion dollar businessr n here with people's lives at stake, much less the economy ini this region, and that what we're going to do is make sure that ta they are doing everything thatrh they need to do from the f management side of the house too support that. >> but you've got a labor union 689 that jackie jeter theter president just said she supports what you're doing.at but can you fire people ifeoe they're not doing their job given what you're under as far as the union contract right now you see somebody not doing theit job can you fire them. t >> there's procedures in the's e union contract for issues likeuk that. but, you know, the way that i ta come at the union issue and alld of our employees, again, we have 13,000 employees, um, unless we create, you know, an atmospherer we're all moving in the same direction, you know, it's goings to be very difficult for me or o anyone to get this agency movinn in the right direction.ti so as i'm looking, you know, to, focus on the management and thee management accountability andabn how
7:41 am
to the front line employees to basically step up, to be part of the solution and we have toav t basically make sure we're sure ' working with them so that they can -- they can provide thatde a assistance.an. so, you know, it's all of us together to make this work for f sure. >> want to get out to melanie alnwick b we do you mentioned mi your expectations that you expect from the employees.emloye we know what riders expectationc are in a nutshell. nutsh what are your expectations?s? >> sure. it's obviously the first thingst they have to always on their ont mind is safety and that's notha something that should come up tp me. it should be things that peoplel as they see something, they do,t something about it.meth they raise their hasn't,.asn't, >> let me jump in for one for second. . one thing we've noticed in thett time you've been here it seems s like until something comes to you directly things are not do done. so do you -- can you doyou -- something to make sure that make others apparently are taking thg lead? for example, when we seee issues with some of these railsi and we saw finally the t insulators were completelyet replaced.. after you wept down there youowu look at it and it made the
7:42 am
the call to do this.e call to di are you basically now thehe decisionmaker for everything orn are you doing the work ofork everybody in the system or other people doing their jobs as welll >> what i'm trying to do is gett people to understand that theyra have to -- they have to make tok these decisions, and not bring t all these decisions to me.e. and again, that's a cultural setting, both in terms ofin tmsf management and safety, thatety,t hasn't been there. >> you'll going to get help geth start dag.art >> yeah.h. >> patrick, he's your new safett chief.f. >> um-hmm. >> he'll make $235,000 a year. y is he going to be the safety sat czar now? is he the go to guy.g >> is he the guy responsible fob it now. >> it seems like everybody doese come to you rightfully so you'ru the general manager, but whatt does patrick lavin bring startrs dag i think today is his first f day on the job.he job. >> sure.>> s. >> with this salary of his, whaw is he going to be doing?oi >> what he brings -- fir and for most if he brings 30 years of experience, 20 years basically l as an operations person win thet
7:43 am
brings that and 10 years as thee safety manager.maner so what he's going to bring isrg both in terms of, you know, we don't want to be in the the safety business shouldn't bedn doing investigations of whatstig wept wrong. it should be in the business off preventing things from goings fi wrong. and that's basically what he wt will will be doing and that'sha his focus.his >> want to get to melanie alnwick out will the in thethint field. i know you have concerns some on the riders have shared as wellhl that you wanted to bring to mr. wiedefeld this morning. morg >> reporter: yes, thank you soo much. so, again, you know, rightnow, g behind me is another example ofe the problems that metro riders d feel like they're experiencingnn on daily basis, and after theert plan came out on friday, talk, talking about it, we knew it was coming.ng military like mobilization, ando it is going to be a significanta in terms of disruptions tonso passengers.ss the majority, sir, of what passengers are asking us is, what about us? if we're gettini reduced service, if it's takings us longer to get
7:44 am
should we have to pay full fare? why should we even have to pay rush hour fair? they're veryy'v concerned about that portion ofn it. about the costs to them whento e they're not getting the servicee they're paying for. >> i have heard that and it a understand it for sure. sure we also have to remember thatr t all the work that you're seeingg being done is paid primarily ory good portion of it is from either -- it is from the localhl jurisdictions or it's from the fair box.ir b so that's -- i mean it's just as financial challenge that we fa face. and so we have to keep to those levels. >> mel, did you have anotherdide question? >> reporter: i did.epter: i d you know, so i recall during the house hearing that the numberume one thing it seemed like thatt fta and also the ntsb .ed to ass being a real problem that needst to be fixed not just these little checklist items althought some of them are very large,arg, they said the biggest issue there is no safety oversight committee,
7:45 am
the only rail system in thete country that has three t jurisdictions involved, they, seem to believe that if a safety oversight committee gets back tt up and operating that that willw make a difference. diffe so when do we think that will happen and do you believe thato will make any difference ayot a? >> it will happen right now as w you can imagine with threeit t jurisdictions the issue iss getting all three legislative bodies and executive branchesncs basically to come up with that program, virginia and the district -- virginia andni maryland and the districtistrt reached an agreement memory of upping to do that and they willw bring to their different legislative bodies as soon as s they can win their psych kess.sk so that's going to happen. hpe i think it does make a a difference.er you know from my perspective,eci you know, it's just about thehe safety whether it's fta playingg that role, whether the safety commission, it doesn't matter from my perspective.tive it's h
7:46 am
mandated by law and i think is a good thing. t just so you know internally i'vv done some things which we did wd not have which was my own internal auditing section too basically look at these same thm issues rather than wait foratheh outside group we should be doind this regular on-going basisis audit wagon we do to make sure,r a, the work was done right thata we continue to main at any timet and we're continuing to monitort it and that is one of the onef functions of the inter stateerta officers as well. a >> as i read through the smartrt track plan the thing that kept jumping out at me to myself i'vv got some work to do.k to d we've got a lot of work to do.o. doing our jobs and getting thiss information out to peopleeo because over the next year thisa is going to be a majoraj disruption in people's lives. l >> um-hmm.>> >> the light at the end of thed tunnel looks pretty good if this work but we've all got to do ouo jobs to get this. t i want to talk to you about transparency.trar right out of the gate, one of of things that people look at youok and said this was a breath o
7:47 am
fresh air you talk aboutk a transparency, that metro was mes going to deal with the public ii different way and one of the onf ways you deal with the public ic how you communicate. we've got a situation in the city where metro' communicationa seems to be breaking down and dd some really important ways withw its main megaphone which is thei media. we had an incident over year ag man was doing hand stands on the tracks.trac that video appeared on one television station.tion television station channel four said they obtain it.id they ob i don't know how you obtainn metro security video.ideo. somebody gives it to you.oou we had an incident two weeks ago csx train went off the tracks.c. that appeared on channel four.nu they said they obtained it.ned we later had to get it from fr metro.. metro security video. this happened again at federal center southwest where yrc gets that video, none.,on other television stations areons given that metro security video. so somebody is leaking this to
7:48 am
is favortism going on. o but the fact of the matter is is whether somebody watches channel four or five or seven or nine, n all of these people are metro riders, and they need this information.n so is part of the focus on the n new way of doing business atst metro a new way of communicating to your megaphone which are w ae these television broadcasterssin and these radio broadcasters and these news organizations in then city. >> because it seems to be notem that way right now. n we'd like to know why. >> you know, from pry perspective, you know, i spreadr myself as wide and as far as i i can with any media. >> you're always available. >> i don't know.on kno i mean, with this agency and with this town, as you know, a lot of things get out throughuth all kinds of sources and,, upping, i can't, you know, i'm m not sure where that's happening in some cases. i'm not sure it's coming from us i can be coming from lots of sources but from where i sit whe i've been out
7:49 am
you've talked to -- >> you are always out there.the let's put it out there. out the i've talked to you more times than any other metro generalal manager with probably the exception of dan tanger lien. l you are always available.vailabe >> i will continued to that.nt the other thing as you know wewe did put out the customerr accountability report on ourt or website where i'm trying toryint again put out things that we dod so people can see where we are, what we're committed to and hown we're getting there.inthere >> what i'm talking aboutt talk selectively sending this videoeo out to certain outlets when w everybody needs to see this.eehi the people who watch four, fivef nine and seven.ne a they all need to see this.ee t it's critical. cti >> i agree. i agree. >> can we get an assurance fromr this this will stop?to >> from what i control, yes. but, again, there's lots off other who's are sources for soms of she is stuff. stuff >> the problem we had on thursday one once the video wass obtained by channel four we putp in three requests for that videv and we were told by your pr department it was not availb
7:50 am
we cannot have it even though this was metro security video iv don't think anybody can obtainbt that unless it comes from metroo w we finally told your pr pr department that we were talkingt with you directly, suddenly ityt became available.ille then it was e-mailed too everybody except channel fourxc who apparently already had theed video. vide so that's where apparentlyery there's some break downak information goes to one place op over others when as tom pointedp out you would think that youwou will want to get it to everybodo at the same time so that everyty rider out there of yours wouldru be able to have the latestatt safety information.maon >> right. right. >> i agree. and again, but i'm not certain how that first video got out. o >> let's talk about how you're u feeling. i had questions from twitterm ti people said why is he doing this? you know, every time youu go to on an interview like this or go to the national pressionap club, you know, people are are hammering with all of thesef the questions which you have responsibility for back toack to november. but you've been granted a systes that for 40 years has been allowed to decay. dec i remembers
7:51 am
road metro in its first monthssm and it was like going to disneye land.land >> um-hmm. >> it doesn't feel like disneyes land.nd >> right. rig >> how is this for you to be ini charge of this right now knowini that people say these thingsse i about metro and feel this way wy about metro?? >> i remain extremely positive. you know, i come acrosscr employees throughout entirente agency and you know, fieldie employees, i come across customers that are basically --c they get it.they they understand where we've been and they understand that wet needing to places and i thinkn t they understand that we are -- a we are really working to doki t that. i think there's an appreciationp of that and i think that what w continues to drive me.ntues to e >> i want to jump in that for at second because we want to get to holly because she's been getting questions from facebook viewerse >> in the past there has beenasb lot of single tracking and delays and people have not ph
7:52 am
seeing new arcing insulator tas very step may be at least that t physical presence where people p say, if you're going tooing inconvenience or commute give uv something to show we're workingg towards the future.ure. holly has been live mentioningen on facebook throughout thisouout interview right now.inno she's getting a lot of commentsc from folks right now as we talk. >> we'll still be on facebook mr. wiedefeld.mr as we continue to talk to you. and you've addressed a lot of ao questions that people haves that asked. a lot of concerns about can we w have a lesser fair until you fif the problem? you addresseded that. i've seen numerous commentsomnt about safety.sety. what are you going to do to up the security on metro trains and buses? >> right. as you know, we've had terrible incidents, terrible tragedieses recently.nt you know, we have a totally open system. sy we serve all types of communities.unit a lot of what happens on our stations and trains reflect andd our buses reflect community.omm. it's just, you know, that's what we have. hav we have done a number of
7:53 am
everything from when our buse buses,ing when some are ourg whr buses we have videos when youhe get on the bus you see you'ree being recorded.or as you've seen we've had -- we h have a tremendous close circuitt television system where whe basically if anything occurs we're catching people you know within hours of it.thin hours so we're trying to get that t message out.e out. like, you know, don't be -- b don't be stupid.. you'll get caught, but, youu know, i think that works for you and me. some of the situations we'reions dealing with with people, youpeu know, under all kinds ofl kindso influence or other issues, ituei doesn't work as well. wel so we have to put more resources there.th >> right. >> we have done that.e ha we've taken people thateoe th basically were not out in the oe field to put them out in the field. we took police that were basically dealing with collecting dollars and revenues from the machines we backfilledl that with contractors to put lat enforcement people out into thee area.. we're zeroing -- every day we do basically we -- we ramp up 2:000 p.m. to around 7:00 because an
7:54 am
area where we have issues. iss we're doing communication withh the different police forces.or we do different communicationsmn with the schools.ls. we follow social media couldn'tu antly because a lot of thist of plays out on social media so wes can anticipate it. i so we will continued to that and literally we do a metro stat s we're monitoring the data and then applying our resources that way.way but it's a very large system. >> sure.. >> you've got 490 officers.s. you've got 64 special. sci is that enough because a lot ofl people tell us they just don't n see these police officers.. >> right. rht >> we're running out of time.uno >> i want do get one thing inhi before we go, too. >> can you use more policepo officers? yes, you can always.. weary cuting now.ng now we just graduated a number ofrf people. op we have i think 15 in the the academy right now. n our police have to be basicallyc police officers that cover allll three jurisdictions. they have to have that hat capabilities so it's -- yout'--y know, it's a roar detailed detai
7:55 am
one. >> i want to make sure i'm get this in because i'm representinn the people. numerous people that have saidas you're doing an mazing job. that we are ganging up on youg p right now, that you inheritedit this system that was just majo majorly flawed.jorly la did you know what you were ge g getting into when you took thiss job? do you walk around every e day with just a pitt in your iyo stomach that goes, what am going to face today? tay >> obviously i knew what i wasas walking into with this job. the depths of it maybe a little bit deeper than i thought.. (laughter).aughte >> but this job, this is a 24-n- job i know it.t. unfortunately we have an even.ae i've been up since pretty much m since midnight.sinc we had a person that was hit ata union station that, you know, had done something on their ow o owned to that. so there's a terrible situationi but we worked through that. tha almost at 2:00 o'clock to deal a with that issue and we've beenee dealing with other issues this s morning that's the nature ofat't what we do. and what, you know, gets lot off i think
7:56 am
