TTC calls for applications for new citizen board members

The TTC wants you to sit on their board.

That is, if you've got mad skills.

"Toronto deserves a TTC board with skilled citizen representation," says Mayor Rob Ford in the official invitation. "With the challenges facing transit, we need an experienced team of citizen commissioners."

TTC chair Karen Stintz is also looking for more than your average public minded citizen. In the same invitation, which went out on Monday, she says "There are many high profile capital projects and service improvement initiatives underway at the TTC that would greatly benefit from the experience and leadership of representatives of the population of Toronto."

The specific qualifications they're looking for, as outlined on the city's site, include experience in business management, financial management, marketing management, labour relations management, supply chain management and even public transit management.

At a rate of pay of $5,000 a year, plus $450 per meeting attended, it sounds like they're just looking for some very inexpensive managers.
