Message from the President
By Bob Newhouser
Due to his busy schedule, Randy Glucksman will be stepping down as our longtime Bulletin news editor with publication of the March 2014 issue. Randy joined the ERA in April 1965 and has been contributing columns to The Bulletin since 1981, 33 years ago! Randy served as commuter news editor beginning in 1988 and as news editor since 1996, covering both commuter and urban rail transit news. In addition to working as a transit consultant in his other life, Randy was appointed to the Metro-North Railroad Commuter Council, elected chair in early 2013, and in June 2013 became chair of the MTA’s Permanent Citizens Advisory Committee (PCAC).
