VTC Executive Director Jon Carnegie and VTC Director Emeritus Martin Robins were both appointed by Governor-Elect Philip Murphy to join his Transition 2018 Team. Jon was appointed to the Transportation Committee and Martin will Co-Chair the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.
As Murphy stated in a recent press announcement about Transition 2018, “New Jersey needs an administration ready to hit the ground running in January, and through the work of the transition committees my administration will not take office blind to the challenges and opportunities before us. I am grateful to everyone who accepted the call to serve our transition. From analyzing and prescribing policy to taking a fresh look at the basic organization of government, these committees have a lot of work to do. I am confident they will put my administration in a position to begin delivering results for the people of New Jersey from day one.”
Jon has more than 25 years of experience in the fields of land use and transportation planning and policy at the municipal, county and regional level. He has been or currently serves as the principal investigator for a variety of research and planning projects involving a range of transportation policy topics. Martin is the founding director of the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center and has over 30 years of experience in transportation planning and policy. Mr. Robins conceptualizes and implements a program of policy research and public forums on transportation-related issues affecting New Jersey, the Northeast and the nation.
Congratulations to both Jon and Martin!!
