Why is Rose still at the wheel of IT? | Letter


I have read with dismay of the events that have rocked Island Transit and call on the IT board to seriously consider replacing Martha Rose as its director.

It is just unbelievable that the director would not have had any idea as to the cash flow situation or that the investments were disappearing before her very eyes over that period of time.

If it is true, Rose is obviously clueless about the important internal operations of IT and should be replaced due to incompetence.

If it is not true, she should be replaced for lying.

In either case, it is just unbelievable that she is still running IT.

I come from the corporate world, and where I come from, this kind of malfeasance would be met with stern discipline and a CEO would be fired instantly.

Let’s get someone in here who is minding the store.
