Christie Spares DRPA Head, Gets Tough


CAMDEN - Hard-charging New jersey Gov. Chris Christie didn’t fire DRPA DRPA Matheusen head John Matheussen (photo) on Thursday, but said he is holding all the DRPA’s leadership accountable for immediate reform. Christie said Matheussen needs to be a leader and he will not accept “inaction” from Matheussen. But he didn’t fire Matheussen, as had been rumored. He also said he would veto any attempt to renew Matteussen's contract until there are signs that the situation has improved at the DRPA and real reform efforts are underway. Christie said he was gravely concerned about the DRPA’s direction. Matheussen is the chief executive officer of the Delaware River Port Authority and his employment is controlled by New Jersey’s governor, under the charter for the DRPA. He has been working without a contract this summer.
