White House withdraws Scott’s nomination to NTSB

The White House has pulled the plug on former MBTA chief Beverly Scott’s nomination to serve on a national transportation board. Scott resigned as general manager of the MBTA last winter, announcing her plans to step down as the transit authority was coping with snow- and cold-induced service failures. The White House press office announced around 7 p.m. Monday that Scott’s nomination to serve on the National Transportation Safety Board had been withdrawn. President Obama on July 30 nominated Scott to fill a term running through Dec. 31, 2019. The board has five seats and members, subject to confirmation by the US Senate. (State House News Service)
