BART's Inspector General will not serve the rest of her term

BART's Inspector General has announced she will retire early.

Harriet Richardson informed the BART board late last week that she would not serve out the rest of her term.

The office of the Inspector General was established in 2018 by voters, to oversee the financial well-being of the transit agency.

During the 5 years since being formed, the office has struggled with adequate staffing to achieve its goals.
