According to the water cooler reports, "Save Amtrak, Fire Richard Anderson "billboards have appeared in Pennsylvania. I was told they were erected near Juniata. A search revealed a Fire Anderson billboards thread on TO, stating they may be around Philadelphia.
While I can't say I've seen pictures of the billboards (if they actually exist), I can confirm the same search revealed a hat on Ebay with the same slogan.
Apparently, people wore them to Pennsylvania Railroad Technical and Historical Society Annual Meeting last week. That may involve the charter train that Amtrak declined to operate, which may explain things.
Personally, I don't think it will do much good. This is particularly true since he is following PRIIA's mandate. While there have been some hiccups and serious miscommunication, I'm not seeing the basis for the vitriol that has headed in his direction. I haven't really seen anything that should warrant termination, removal or even a serious change in his thinking. He is still working it out. We don't have a fully formed vision. While I believe he should have more time, I also believe the Board of Directors should chart a clear path for him to follow.
I considered putting this tidbit in the existing Richard Anderson CEO thread but figured this may be worthy of its own discussion. Naturally, the mods will make the final call and merge if necessary.
