“I have submitted my resignation to Governor Christie and will be leaving NJ TRANSIT effective March 2, 2014,” he wrote. “As I depart, I want to thank you for your dedication, hard work and support during a turbulent time. Your efforts have gotten us through the challenges of these last four years and for your efforts and commitment I will always be grateful.” Weinstein leaving NJ Transit
