Gov. Andrew Cuomo has appointed former Bronx Borough President (1987-2001) Fernando Ferrer to serve on the board of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

Current Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. said of the appointment, "Governor Cuomo has made an excellent choice in Fernando Ferrer, who will undoubtedly be a strong advocate for the mil- lions who use our public transportation system on a daily basis, just as he has been throughout his career in public service. I look forward to celebrat- ing his confirmation to the board of the MTA in the very near future."
