Jim Knighton resigns as Chief of Staff, Maryland Transit Administration

June 15, 2017: Kevin Quinn has been appointed as the Acting Administrator of the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA). Quinn was most recently the MTA Director of Planning and Programs. Quinn succeeds Paul Comfort, who recently resigned as the Administrator. Jim Knighton also recently resigned as the MTA Chief of Staff. The resignations of Comfort and Knighton are disruptive but won't doom the BaltimoreLink debut, said Brian O'Malley, the president of the Central Maryland Transportation Alliance, a rider advocacy group. "They've already printed the schedules, they've already been training the operators, so they're really at the implementation of the final phase leading up to the launch," O'Malley said. O'Malley praised Quinn as "very qualified," although he questioned the timing of Comfort's departure. Maryland Department of Transportation officials released no reasoning about the resignations of Comfort and Knighton in a department announcement, calling the resignations a personnel matter. Documents released on Friday, June 9, 2017, showed that Knighton allegedly authorized spending of more than $65,000 on remodeling Comfort's offices in Baltimore. The purchases were made without competitive bids as required under state law for purchases of more than $25,000. Officials would not say whether the purchases were related to the departure of Comfort and Knighton. The MTA is a division of the Maryland Transportation Department.
