The full MBTA Board met on April 28th. There was no mention of the FTA letter and what the MBTA was doing, one would assume, to prepare for the arrival FTA's Safety Management Inspection team.
The GM of the MBTA and possibly the Chair of the MBTA Board should resign for failing to bring the letter to the attention of the full Board during its meeting on April 28th. They also failed in their duty to inform the public of the FTA letter which should have been made public without delay.
In the corporate world such a letter would in all likelihood have been considered "material information" that would need to be disclosed to the public promptly. Of course, the MBTA and its Board does not operate according to the rules of the SEC.
