Tom Mulligan resigns

Postby Rockingham Racer » Thu Feb 26, 2015 1:22 pm

There's a story floating around that he's resigning. A brief quote from the Herald [and from another discussion group]

> The general manager of the Bay State's problem-plagued commuter rail
> service stepped down yesterday on the eve of a key meeting between
> Gov. Charlie Baker and top Keolis executives who flew in from France
> in a bid to turn things around at the flagging train service,
> according to several sources.
>
> "The governor has made clear to Keolis that their lack of performance
> is unacceptable, has directed significant resources to assist in
> their recovery and looks forward to checking in on their progress"
> today, Baker spokesman Billy Pitman said.
>
> Thomas M. Mulligan, a retired passenger operations director for
> Amtrak and Union Pacific railroads, who served as an Omaha, Neb.,
> city councilor before joining Keolis in July as its GM, will be
> replaced by Gerald Francis, who will take over as acting general
> manager, sources said. Mulligan did not return several messages.

Tough time to take the reins at a long-struggling commuter rail operation. I don't know what mistakes he may have made, but I have to say I feel for the guy.
