Governor Baker’s appointment of Stephanie Pollack as Secretary of Transportation shows the Governor’s commitment to reform, and to making transportation policy and project decisions based on good information and in the interests of the entire commonwealth. Our ability to compete and thrive as a state depends on a robust transportation network, and we acknowledge the Governor’s leadership in appointing an experienced professional to guide MassDOT.
Secretary Pollack has a deserved reputation as a well-respected expert in transportation finance, and comes to this important job very familiar with the strengths and challenges in the agencies that she will lead. She is committed to the well-being of the commonwealth’s residents of every station in life, and has consistently supported transportation investments that create economic growth and opportunity, and which complement responsible environmental policy as well as forward-looking economic development strategies.
Massachusetts has a strong leader at the helm of the Department of Transportation, and we applaud Governor Baker for this well-qualified appointment.
