MTA, Metro-North Execs Accept Malloy’s Rebuke

The top leaders of Metro-North came to Hartford today to accept a public dressing down from Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and acknowledge that a spate of accidents and service interruptions are symptomatic of problems deep within the nation’s busiest commuter railroad.

“It’s not by coincidence. There’s something going in the organization,” said Thomas F. Prendergast, the chairman and chief executive of the railroad’s parent, the Metropolitan Transit Authority. “There are management and cultural issues, and I think we’ll find those, and we’ll root them out.”

Prendergast and Joseph J. Giulietti, the newly appointed president of Metro-North, met privately with Malloy and top administration officials at the State Capitol, then stood by as the governor described the railroad’s management in withering terms during a televised news conference.

“I have made perfectly clear, as I think was evident to both of the gentlemen, that they have lost the confidence of many of our riders and our citizens in the state of Connecticut, and it is their job to earn it back,” Malloy said.
