Gunn signs on as Free Congress Foundation adjunct scholar


Former Amtrak President David Gunn didn’t stay away from the public transportation arena for long. He recently accepted a position as an adjunct scholar with the Free Congress Foundation, a conservative public policy institute that promotes public transportation.

Gunn — who was fired from Amtrak last month — will contribute to the foundation’s series of essays on "conservatives and public transportation." He also has served as the head of transit systems in Washington, D.C., and New York City.

“Free Congress Foundation intends to make David Gunn’s unique expertise on both urban and inter-urban rail passenger service available to Washington policy-makers, especially conservatives,” said foundation Chairman Paul Weyrich in a prepared statement.
