Sudden departure of Johnson
from U.S. Seaway agency

2012-05-11

Collister Johnson Jr. is no longer head of the Washington-based Saint Lawrence Seaway Administration. Deputy Administrator Craig Middlebrook took over as acting Administrator on May 8 in reportedly controversial circumstances.
He had five months left in his seven-year term as an appointee of the Bush administration.

Some observers speculated that officials of the Obama administration did not appreciate Mr. Johnson's recent criticisms of budget cuts that impacted adversely on Great Lakes ports' dredging.

Not clear was whether he resigned or was dismissed by the Department of Transportation (DOT). A U.S. media report claimed Mr. Johnson's office was locked and he was unable to enter before a meeting with DOT.
