"Sickles first served on the Washington Metropolitan Transit Authority board in 1967, but his efforts to bring a subway system to the area started much earlier. From 1963 to 1967, Sickles served as a Maryland Congressman and chaired the Compact Commission, which began the legal framework to establish Metro."
