Governor Spitzer yesterday nominated a prominent real estate developer as chairman of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. Dale Hemmerdinger, 62, is president of the Hemmerdinger Corporation and of Atco Properties and Management.
As a former head of the Citizens Budget Commission, he recommended a fare hike to help the MTA cover operating expenses. Mr. Hemmerdinger would replace another real estate mogul, Peter Kalikow, if approved by the State Senate.
