Inquirer: Corbett attends first DRPA meeting as chairman
Gov. Corbett got down to business as Delaware River Port Authority chairman yesterday, maintaining he would attend meetings regularly, work closely with New Jersey Gov. Christie, and place commuters as a top concern, The Inquirer’s Paul Nussbaum reported.
“The business of the DRPA, as far as I’m concerned . . . is the commute and the safe transportation of people back and forth across the Delaware River,” he told reporters after overseeing his first meeting of a reconstituted DRPA board.
He said he would work closely with Gov. Christie and would be an active chairman. He plans to make it to most meetings, Corbett said, unlike former Gov. Ed Rendell, who also appointed himself to the board but rarely attended its gatherings.
“I want to take a look at what’s going on here,” Corbett said. “It certainly is on the minds of the people of southeast Pennsylvania.”
