Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich, a member of the Metrolink Board of Directors, issued the following statement on the announced resignation of Metrolink CEO John Fenton: “John Fenton’s resignation is a major loss for Metrolink’s riders, our taxpayers and the Board. He was the right leader to guide Metrolink through the most critical time in its history following the Chatsworth crash. His hands-on leadership style, vast railroad industry knowledge, private-sector approach and laser focus on safety was a breath of fresh air. He introduced the first Metrolink express train service, shaving hours off the weekly commute to and from Los Angeles for residents of the Antelope, Santa Clarita, and San Gabriel Valleys, and San Bernardino County. He established innovative concepts including the train to Del Mar Race Track, connected with our business community to increase ridership, and helped secure $1 billion from the High Speed Rail Authority to develop a seamless regional Metrolink transit system connecting Southern California commuters from the Antelope Valley to San Diego County.
