FRA deputy administrator resigns over questions about 'outside work'

Posted on February 12, 2018

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Washington Post reports that the Federal Railroad Administration’s (FRA) Deputy Administrator Heath Hall resigned after allegations were raised about “outside work” he took on while employed as a senior federal official.

Hall, a public relations professional and political consultant who served as a spokesman for a sheriff’s office in Mississippi, reportedly continued work at his public relations firm while also working for the FRA.

Politico first reported Hall’s departure and questions about his continued relationship with the outside firm he had run. He reportedly requested a leave of absence from his duties as acting administrator in January to “address an urgent family matter.” For the full story, click here.
