Another one bites the dust!
The Boston Globe wrote:Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority general manager Luis Ramirez is out after just 15 months in the job.

Transportation Secretary Stephanie Pollack, who oversees the agency for the Baker administration, said it was time for a change.

As she and Ramirez “talked through what needed to happen in 2019 and beyond, we both agreed there was a different direction he needed to go in and the T needed to go in,” Pollack said in an interview. “My job has been to make sure the T has the right leadership at the right time.”

Steve Poftak, the vice chairman of the T’s governing board and the head of a public policy institute at Harvard University, will take over as the general manager. He previously served as the interim general manager for about two months prior to Ramirez’s hiring.
