But this week that candidate, Luis Ramirez, washed out after barely 15 months. And his replacement couldn’t be more different: a public policy veteran who has spent years thinking and writing about transit and public administration, serves on the T’s oversight board, and even briefly ran the agency as interim GM.Now, Steve Poftak, a 48-year-old Roslindale resident who runs an institute at Harvard University, will see whether his knowledge and advocacy can transfer to better service from an agency racing to replace aging equipment as restless riders grow increasingly vocal about … [Read more...] about ‘He’s gotten to know every slice of that agency’: Who is Steve Poftak, the next GM of the MBTA?

Todd Spangler, Kathleen Gray and Katrease Stafford Detroit Free Press Published 4:56 p.m. UTC Jul 26, 2018 WASHINGTON — It will be another three months before the 658,000 or so people who live in what used to be U.S. Rep.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) introduced articles of impeachment, cosponsored by 9 other Republicans, which accuse Rosenstein of “high crimes and misdemeanors.” Meadows is chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, a conservative group co-founded by Jordan. In particular, they accuse Rosenstein of a conflict of interest relating to the authorization of FISA surveillance of Carter Page, a former adviser to Donald Trump; violating a Congressional subpoena and ignoring information requests; and excessive redaction of documents presented. The group needs a majority in the House of Representatives and two-thirds support in the Senate to secure an impeachment conviction. There is … [Read more...] about Rod Rosenstein Impeachment: Who Are the 11 Republicans Demanding Deputy AG’s Dismissal?
