The Tri-State Transportation Campaign congratulates Astrid C. Glynn on her appointment to lead the New York State Department of Transportation. We congratulate Governor Spitzer on choosing a strong leader with experience across a wide range of policy areas, including highways, land use and mass transit. We look forward to a new generation of leadership and policy change to foster smart growth and better mobility in New York State in coming years.

The Tri-State Transportation Campaign is an advocacy group working for a more balanced transportation system in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut and has been a leading critic of transportation departments and their policies in New York State and the New York metropolitan region.
