Sources: Brimmeier reportedly out of the running for transit chief

Posted By on Thu, Jan 31, 2013 at 3:13 PM

According to multiple sources, Port Authority board member and former turnpike chief Joe Brimmeier will not be tapped by county executive Rich Fitzgerald to head up the transit agency. Sources tell City Paper that current CEO Steve Bland's departure is still likely to be announced tomorrow at the agency's board meeting, however.

As we noted earlier this morning, rumors of Brimmeier's potential appointment have attracted increasingly public concern, and folks within Fitzgerald's inner circle have also expressed discontent with the idea.
