Lapp named new N.Y. MTA director

Posted on January 17, 2002

Katherine M. Lapp was appointed Wednesday as the new executive director of the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority by MTA Chairman Peter Kalikow. Lapp will be the first woman to serve as executive director since the MTA's creation in 1968. Previously, she served for four years as director of criminal justice for New York State, where she was Governor Pataki's primary advisor on criminal justice policy. "She has demonstrated her administrative abilities many times over, and her public safety record will be a huge asset to this organization," said Kalikow. Lapp is expected to be approved by the MTA Board at its monthly meeting on January 29.
