The governing body of two of the Washington area’s main airports is expected to tap the former head of the U.S. Postal Service on Wednesday as its next chief executive, according to sources familiar with the search.
 
John E. “Jack” Potter, the recently retired postmaster general, has emerged as the leading candidate to take over the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, which oversees Reagan National and Dulles International airports and the multibillion-dollar project to extend Metrorail to Dulles and Loudoun County
 
Potter, who retired in December after a 32-year postal career, would take the top job at a tumultuous time for the airports authority. The authority’s board has been skewered by local, state and federal leaders for its management of the second phase of the 23-mile Metro project and for its initial handling of the search for a new chief executive
 
Board Chairman Charles D. Snelling said he could not comment on the search . . . .
