Blumenthal Statement On Release Of Start Date For New Metro-North President

(Washington, DC) – Today, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) issued a statement in response to Metro-North’s release of a start date for the railroad’s incoming-President Joseph Giulietti. Giulietti will begin his tenure at Metro-North on February 10.

“I am pleased that Metro-North released, at my urging, a start date for its incoming-President Joseph Giulietti today. Metro-North is in desperate need of a top-to-bottom culture change focused on safety and reliability. Mr. Giulietti’s first day on the job is a critical turning point in that process, but significant, meaningful changes are still needed in Metro-North’s personnel, practices, and procedures. I look forward to working with Mr. Giulietti in the months and years ahead as he works to return the railroad to the safe and reliable transportation system it once was.”
