    AC Transit General Manager David Armijo resigned today, effective immediately, by letter provided to the District’s Board of Directors, in which Mr. Armijo stated that his tenure at the District was “one of the most satisfying of any of the positions I have held during my 30-year career in transit.”

    ‘However, Christian Peeples, president of the district’s board, had scheduled a special meeting Friday to consider a resolution “removing the General Manager from office.”

    ‘After news of Armijo’s resignation broke, that meeting was canceled.

    ‘In a phone interview, Peeples said his resolution was offered in the middle of the board’s annual evaluation of Armijo’s performance, and, “if the board after hearing from Mr. Armijo, agreed with me, that’s what we would have done.”‘
