Gov. Phil Murphy named five new candidates for the NJ Transit board and decided not to nominate one current member who has served for two years.

The governor nominated Carlos A. Medina, Kiabi Carson and Evan Weiss to be approved by the Senate. Murphy also directly appointed Rashonda Brown and Karen Thomas.

“Carlos, Kiabi, Evan, Rashonda and Karen are the right choice to join the NJ Transit board during this period of transformation to ensure proper oversight and accountability as we continue to make key improvements,” Murphy said in a statement. “Their diverse perspectives will be a huge asset in favor of NJ Transit and New Jersey passengers.”

James D. Adams, who has served on the NJ Transit board since February 2020 with the first wave of new members, has not been re-appointed by Murphy, confirmed a man in the governor’s office.
