Update on Patrick Driscoll no longer covering transportation for the SAEN

Further info from the San Antonio Express-News about the replacement of long-time transportation reporter Patrick Driscoll. Re my question about if somebody will be covering transportation, why can't Patrick still have that position, their community liaison says, "Because transportation is an important beat, I'm sure it will be assigned to a veteran reporter, possibly as part of a larger area of responsibility, say he or she might cover City Council and transportation, or municipal government, to include transportation."

The upshot still is there will one less veteran reporter focusing on--shining a light on--the ever-growing topic of transportation in Texas.

Thanks Patrick for all your past work.
