inewsource has been reporting on problems, from security risks to contract failing to high employee turnover, in the North County Transit District (NCTD) since February 2013. Some stories about safety concerns were brought to us by sources who risked their jobs in the process.

Note: Most of the Board Members are new to the Board as of later January, with the exception of horn, packard and gallo. To not include that information without the number of requests specifically made to them is a bit disingenous.
Thank you for your response.
Yes, most of the Board members are recent additions, having come on board in January. We have included all of these board members in all of our requests for comment since February. As to the number of requests: we have reached out to all board members for every major story, including the Security Breach series, the oversight and turnover series, and the audit series.
