DeLeo said in a prepared statement on Wednesday that he has come out in support of Gov. Charlie Baker’s plan to salvage the troubled public transportation agency after a catastrophic winter exposed its systemic problems.
“As I have stated consistently the MBTA failures of this winter were completely unacceptable and we must make the changes necessary to fix the system. I am committed to the creation of a control board to help implement much needed reform – just as the House passed Pacheco-reform in its budget last month,” said DeLeo in a statement emailed to reporters.
