David A. Wolf has been appointed by the AC Transit Board of Directors as the new General Counsel, effective May 13, 2013. Wolf assumes the position of General Counsel with more than 25 years' experience in the practice of law and will succeed Kenneth C. Scheidig, who retired from the agency in December 2010 and has served as Interim General Counsel since November 2012.
Greg Harper, President of the Board of Directors said, "With the pension reform mandates from the State, labor and employment issues have dominated the legal matters coming before the Board and, with labor contract negotiations this year, that dominance will intensify. The Board felt that, in David, our General Counsel has great expertise in this most important area."
Wolf holds bachelor's degrees in Political Science and German Language from California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo and California State University East Bay respectively, and is a graduate of the University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law. He is currently a member of the Bar Association of San Francisco and serves as Vice Chair of the association's Ethics Committee. In his spare time, he serves as Board President and Chief Executive Officer of the Young People's Symphony Orchestra, a non-profit organization located in Berkeley.
