MBTA Advisory Board named Mayor Koch to the MBTA governing body. Elected Mayor of Quincy since 2007 and Chairman of the MBTA Advisory Board for the last decade. This is the MBTA’s first seat at the governance table and has been without a dedicated governing body since the end of June. Koch will be the first person named to the seven member MBTA board of directors created in a law by Governor Charlie Baker which was signed earlier this year with hopes to empower the Advisory Board to appoint one member directly.
