Corey Johnson, Speaker of the New York City Council, joins Seth Barron to discuss the state of New York City’s transit system and his plan to break up the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), allowing the city to take control of its buses, subways, bridges, and tunnels. According to Johnson, direct control of the MTA would enhance its responsiveness, accountability, and transparency.

    Always enjoy these podcasts. Sounds like Mr. Johnson has some good ideas. Query: Why in the heck are the good people of NYC paying Bill de Blasio since he seems to have basically checked out of governing the city? Then you have this stupid thing with his wife and the statues. I assume any statue of a transgender will have to be done by a transgender sculptor, etc. Although if I were looking for the commission I would identify as transgender for the duration and then switch back. Who could say nay?
