Posted by Jeff Mullan, MassDOT Secretary & CEO
This afternoon, Governor Patrick announced that he has accepted my resignation as Secretary of Transportation, effective September 2, 2011. He also announced that he has appointed Rich Davey to succeed me as Secretary.
It’s never a good time to leave any organization, particularly one like ours when so many of you are doing such good work and we have so much more work to do. But, for the reasons I shared with all of you in my message a few weeks ago, I know that this is the right decision for me and my family. In September, I will return to Foley Hoag to resume my law practice.
I am pleased that the Governor has recognized Rich’s talents and know that, with his energy, smarts, and curiosity, transportation reform is in good hands. Over the next month, I intend to work closely with Rich in effecting a smooth transition. I ask that you do so as well.
By now, all of you know how much I believe in all that we have done and are doing. You should also know how enormously proud I am of the progress we have made and the work you have all done. For me personally, I am particularly proud to have kept my head about me in times of difficulty, to have served my turn for over four years, and to have earned the friendship and respect of so many of you. For that, I thank you.
I won’t say goodbye because I have a few more weeks left. I look forward to them.
