Hochul wants to make MTA acting chief Janno Lieber permanent


Governor Kathy Hochul wants to nominate Janno Lieber as the permanent chairperson and chief executive officer of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, a role he’s been serving in an acting capacity for more than three months. 

“Janno, by the way, I’m really looking forward to dropping the word ‘acting’ soon, ok, can we just make this permanent,” the governor announced at a breakfast event hosted by the Association for a Better New York on Nov. 18.
