Hayashi Once Again Becomes Director Of Taxis
Director of Transportation Ed Reiskin, who is solely responsible for the decision, is to be commended for taking his time, studying the situation and making the right choice.
Ms. Hayashi has been a controversial figure and the object of numerous misguided personal attacks.
Hayashi was demoted from Director to Deputy Director in September of 2009 by Reiskin's predecessor Nathaniel Ford because she refused to endorse the schemes of former Mayor Gavin Newsom and MTA Director Malcolm Heinicke (see below).
The taxi industry should also be given more power and respect as a result of her promotion.
