Big leadership shake-up rocks Port Authority

"I can think of no one better than Kevin O'Toole to assume the Port Authority chairmanship at this point, with New Jersey and NY moving forward with the most important project in generations to impact commuters and the economy in the Northeast Corridor, the Gateway Program", Christie said in a statement.

"I can think of no one better than Kevin O'Toole to assume the Port Authority chairmanship at this point, with New Jersey and NY moving forward with the most important project in generations to impact commuters and the economy in the Northeast Corridor, the Gateway Program".

Governors Andrew Cuomo and Chris Christie shook up the Port Authority of NY and New Jersey on Tuesday, replacing its chairman and executive director and ordering new appointees to rekindle the hunt for a professional manager.

Mr. Cotton has worked for Mr. Cuomo as special counsel for interagency initiatives, overseeing numerous governor's infrastructure projects, including the new Tappan Zee Bridge.

Christie, a Republican, said he can think of "no one better" than O'Toole to oversee the agency as the Gateway project to revamp the rail tunnels beneath the Hudson River gears up.

Tapped to lead the board is Kevin O'Toole, a lawyer, Christie ally and former long-time state senator who joined the board in March.

Under the new plans, Mr. Foye and Ms. Hakim would report to Mr. Lhota as part of an expanded leadership team, with Ms. Hakim leading daily operations. Degnan came to prominence in the wake of the George Washington Bridge lane-closing scandal, replacing David Samson as Port Authority chairman. Foye, who was appointed as the agency's executive director in 2011, notably ordered for the lanes to be reopened on September 9, 2013. Mr. Foye and Ms. Hakim were interviewed by a search committee in May to replace Mr. Prendergast, though Mr. Cuomo ultimately chose to appoint Mr. Lhota as chairman instead. Foye is expected to take a leadership role at the beleaguered agency, according to a source.
