MARTA leader vows to keep DeKalb promises

Last year, MARTA General Manager and CEO Jeffrey Parker was named Man of the Year by the Atlanta chapter of the Women’s Transportation Seminar for his track record of hiring and promoting women. For months, the AJC asked to speak with him about MARTA’s handling of sexual harassment claims, but he declined and would not make any other officials available for interviews.
