Altman bails

If I remember, Altman was making $150,000 to plan out the new waterfront. It is a job that will oversee (many) millions of spending.

"Andrew Altman, chief executive of the Anacostia Waterfront Corp., which has been trying to spur development around a proposed baseball stadium, will leave his post within three weeks to take a position with a private development company in New York City. Altman, a former D.C. planning official, assumed the top job with the corporation in January, shortly after its creation. One of Altman's first major efforts has been creating an entertainment district around the proposed stadium, for which the corporation solicited bids from private developers that are due this month.Altman said he was leaving because the New York company, which he would not name, made a 'once-in-a-lifetime offer.'"
