CTA adds Executives and Managers, cuts service:
Administrative jobs more than doubled during the first five years of Frank Kruesi's leadership of the Chicago Transit Authority - which on Monday will announce details of a contingency plan to cut service and lay off bus drivers and train crews to reel in a 2005 budget deficit.
The number of employees working desk jobs at the CTA, a traditional enclave for City Hall patronage, swelled after Mayor Richard Daley chose Kruesi, a longtime Daley political confidant, to become president of the transit agency in late 1997
