WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (Metro) plans to offer its GM job to a candidate who initially fell short in the selection process but now is in line for the position because the agency’s No. 1 choice backed out, The Washington Post reported.

Several people familiar with the situation identified the new front-runner for Metro’s top management job as Paul J. Wiedefeld, who was a Maryland transportation official for 11 years, mostly under two Democratic governors, according to the report.

After corporate financial expert Neal S. Cohen declined to become Metro’s chief executive, D.C. Council member Jack Evans said the second of two finalists for the job “is still interested” in the position and would be asked to decide Wednesday whether to accept it, according to The Washington Post.
