DENVER - Denver's Regional Transportation District has hired the former leader of a Texas transit agency as an interim general manager while it searches for a permanent general manager and CEO. The Denver Post reported Paul Ballard was selected from five finalists for the position overseeing the metro Denver transport system. The RTD board voted 9-6 to hire Ballard with a Feb. 12 target for negotiating his short-term contract. Ballard retired last year from his position as president and CEO of the Trinity Metro transit agency in Fort Worth, Texas. The system has experienced a shortage of bus drivers and train operators.
