NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy on Friday he believes the Metropolitan Transportation Authority has a “more respectful attitude” toward the state in the wake of various crises involving the Metro-North Railroad.
Malloy met Friday with Thomas Prendergast, who was reappointed the same day to another term as MTA chairman. Malloy was attending the Regional Plan Association Assembly in New York.
Malloy told The Associated Press that Connecticut has “a much better relationship with the MTA” since he became governor and Prendergast became the MTA chairman. Malloy said they’ve worked through some crises together and the MTA has “a better and more respectful attitude” toward Connecticut than in the past.
