NEWARK, N.J. — Just days before he was set to start work, ABC News reports that William Crosbie will not take over as executive director of New Jersey TRANSIT, citing concerns over relocating his family from Virginia.

NJ TRANSIT’s board unanimously approved Crosbie as executive director earlier this month to replace Ronnie Hakim, who left last fall to take a job at New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

"Better he have second thoughts on someone else's dime and not the New Jersey taxpayers' dime,” Gov. Chris Christie said. “I just wish that when you say you accept the job and you look somebody in the eye, I think it's important that you keep your word."

Dennis Martin, the agency's GM, bus operations, will continue as interim executive director. For the full story, click here.
