    BART's new general manager will have a lot to deal with.

    BART directors voted 8-1 Monday to appoint former Seattle transportation chief Grace Crunican as BART's new general manager.

    Crunican has also served as the second-ranking person in the Federal Transit Administration under President Bill Clinton and as head of Oregon's Department of Transportation.
       
    The lone director to vote against appointing Crunican was director James Fang, of San Francisco.

    Crunican will succeed Dorothy Dugger, who resigned under pressure earlier this year. Crunican will be paid a base salary of $300,000 per year plus $20,000 in management incentive pay.
