The Commissioner's Report


October 2002

Governor McGreevey has asked me to implement his vision of a Department that is efficient and committed to smart growth. Communicating with citizens on a regular basis is an integral part of sharing this vision. The Commissioner's Report, a monthly newsletter, highlights the Department's pledge to serve the transportation needs in your communities and throughout the state. New Jerseyans deserve a better quality of life, ensured by an effective transportation network. I hope this newsletter is helpful to you.
