Mullan-2011

Posted by Jeff Mullan, MassDOT Secretary and Chief Executive Officer

This is my last weekly message.  Tomorrow, Rich Davey will become Secretary of Transportation.  I am confident that he will do an outstanding job.

There is little I can write today to add to what I have shared with all of you already.  I will therefore simply thank all of you for your work in building our organization.  I know that many of you have sacrificed and know that sometimes it was lumpy and, frankly, hard.  We also stumbled once or twice.  But on the whole, you have all participated in creating a brand new thing, in making real change from the inside out, and in getting in on the ground floor of something that I know, and many of you know, will be great.  I am proud that so many of you are proud to be a part of MassDOT. 

I will miss leading the DOT enormously and will miss all of you as well.  I know, however, that it is time for me to move on and for Rich to take his turn.  I look forward to again practicing law.  Still, as I write this today, it seems unlikely that I will trade many future days for any of the days I spent here.  We get so few opportunities to make a difference.  I am grateful to have had a shot at one.  I hope that you are as well.

Don’t ever let people tell you that it is wrong to seek excellence, that public service is not worthwhile, and that ours will not soon be the best DOT in America.  Promise yourself that you will always do your best and that safety and customer service will remain front and center.  And, most importantly, please keep moving our band of brothers and sisters forward.

I will not be far away.  I hope that you will not be either.  Enjoy the days and weeks ahead.
