NJ Transit Chief Resigns; Sandy Decisions Assailed

NEWARK, N.J. -

James Weinstein, the head of New Jersey’s public transit agency, said Tuesday that he is resigning effective March 2, The Associated Press reported. Weinstein oversaw numerous projects that expanded the reach of the nation’s third largest transit agency. But he’ll also be remembered for his decision to leave rail cars in low-lying train yards before Superstorm Sandy led to more than $100 million in flood damage.
