Hakim Officially Appointed to Lead NJT
New Jersey's public transportation agency has a new leader.
Neither Hakim nor Jim Weinstein, who resigned a week ago as executive director, attended the meeting.
Weinstein announced his resignation last week, leaving behind a record that includes a costly decision to leave rail equipment in the path of Superstorm Sandy and the image of thousands of fans stranded for hours after this month's Super Bowl when trains couldn't accommodate them.
