Another person is leaving Metro’s media relations department in less than a month.
Farbstein was replaced by Dan Stessel. Stessel came to Metro from New Jersey Transit and has pushed Metro to became more engaged with riders using social media.
Gates was unavailable to comment.
“We are very sorry to see her go,” Stessel said Monday. “She’s a truly professional communicator and it is a loss.”
Stessel is seeking to fill two full-time positions in media relations — one is for a social media representation, who will help with blogging and Twitters; the other position is for a public communications coordinator who will provide information for bus riders.
