NJT Head James Weinstein to Resign
The head of New Jersey's beleaguered public transit agency is stepping down.
James Weinstein informed employees in a letter Tuesday that he has submitted a letter of resignation to Gov. Chris Christie and will leave March 2.
A copy of the letter was obtained by The Associated Press.
Weinstein oversaw numerous projects that expanded the reach of the nation's third largest transit agency. But he'll also be remembered for two recent events that caused controversy.
Veronique Hakim, head of the Turnpike Authority, will succeed Weinstein.
The state's deputy transportation commissioner, Joseph Mrozek, will take over at the Turnpike Authority.
