The chairman of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said Thursday that the agency is cooperating with authorities investigating whether his predecessor received preferential treatment from United Airlines.
Senate President Steve Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto said Port Authority Chairman John Degnan agreed to put the proposal on hold.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo added their voices Tuesday to those seeking to reform the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
Christie announced Tuesday that he’s recommended John Degnan to replace David Samson, who resigned last month from the job.
The way Gov. Christie sees it, guns are just one piece of the puzzle, a very complicated puzzle, and that’s why he has assembled the task force of experts to study the root causes of violence in New Jersey.
Former Brewster mayor John Degnan said the grand larceny charges filed against Robert Serino, if true, shake “everything I believe about human nature and doing the right thing.”
