Coughlin picks Middlesex freeholder for NJ Transit board

By David Wildstein, June 22 2020 9:18 am

Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin has named Shanti Narra, a Middlesex County freeholder, as his appointee to the New Jersey Transit board.

“A commuter herself, Freeholder Narra is well known in my home county of Middlesex for her sense of fairness and dedication to the people she serves. Her hard work on behalf of commuters will position her to be invaluable to NJ Transit,” Coughlin said.

Narra is a supervisor in the criminal defense division of the Legal Aid Society of New York.

“Before the COVID-19 pandemic, I was one of thousands of Middlesex County residents who commuted by bus to New York City every day,” Narra said. “I am acutely aware of the issues facing NJ TRANSIT as the agency works to accommodate passengers. I will do everything I possibly can to ensure NJ TRANSIT is a model for the rest of the country in meeting the needs of all bus and rail commuters.”
