Sadik-Khan for Transportation Secretary?

Streetsblog reported last week that New York City DOT Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan may be considered for a position in Barack Obama's Department of Transportation, maybe as Secretary.

Considering what she has done for NYC since arriving in mid-2007, having her be a leader in national transportation policy would be incredible. If you have 11 minutes to watch this video summarizing how she has helped changed NYC's streetscape, watch it. It's amazing. We can only hope that some of this innovative and creative energy will emerge in Philadelphia.
