Mullan-2011

Posted by Jeff Mullan, MassDOT Secretary & CEO

This is not a goodbye note.  While the news reports that I have spoken with Governor Patrick about moving on from the Cabinet are true, I have made no final decisions regarding my future.  I took this job precisely because of the challenge it represented and look forward to continuing to lead the DOT in the weeks and months ahead.  However, as much as I enjoy what we are all doing, and am committed to transportation reform and to all of you, my family comes first. 

I returned to State government in 2007 because I was inspired by the election of Governor Patrick and Lt. Governor Murray and the commitment that they showed during the campaign.  I thought that under their leadership, we could and would set the direction for state transportation for the next two generations.  I am gratified to know that, with the help of all of you, we are on the way to doing that.  Bravo.

MassDOT is a gift.  For us, it offers the chance to strive for and achieve excellence in all that we do.  To the people of Massachusetts, it offers the promise of a renewed compact with them and trust in us.  For the transportation world, it offers the opportunity to build a true multimodal, safety-focused, mission-driven, customer-centric, employee-empowered enterprise that others will envy.  I hope you feel lucky to be on the ground floor of what we are doing together and to have, as Registrar Kaprielian says, a front row seat.  I sure do.

This week, I spoke a lot about the fact that we have a lot of work to do.  I also said that we have done a lot of work already.  I am proud of that and you should be as well.  This is no time to stray from the direction we have set.  Indeed, we need to accelerate our work to achieve our stated goals.  I am doing so and ask all of you to do so as well.
