Ray LaHood

Poll: Who Should Be the Next U.S. Transportation Secretary?

3:31 PM EST on November 16, 2012

Ryan Holeywell over at Governing Magazine has put together a pretty comprehensive list of possible contenders for the top job at U.S. DOT, if Ray LaHood makes good on his word and splits for the private sector. It's unclear when he's leaving, or if he even really meant to say he was definitely leaving, but odds are there will be a vacancy over there pretty soon.

So, we're accepting applications. Generous benefits package, all federal holidays off, metro-accessible office, Starbucks downstairs. You get your name in Streetsblog. What more could you want?

Cast your vote before midnight Sunday night and we'll report back on the official Streetsblog choice for the next top dog. Oh, and since there are so many superstars to choose from on this list, go ahead and pick up to three.
