They aren't "city officials". They're officials of the Metropolitan
Transit Authority, which is primarily beholden to the state governor.

It's just not right to blame this one on the city; Governor Pataki is
doing his level best to dump all his other self-induced political
troubles on the (surprisingly capable, non-political, and competent,
for once!) city administration already.
