Massachusetts Governor Appoints Tesler Acting DOT Secretary Following Pollack’s Appointment to the FHWA

BOSTON, MA — Governor Charlie Baker and Lt. Governor Karyn Polito announce the departure of Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) Secretary and CEO Stephanie Pollack, and appoint Jamey L. Tesler as Acting Secretary of Transportation. Pollack was announced as Deputy Administrator of the Federal Highway Administration for the Biden-Harris Administration.

Tesler, previously Registrar of Motor Vehicles, has years of experience across the Department of Transportation, previously serving as Chief Operating Officer, Chief of Staff, and Assistant Secretary for Procurement for MassDOT. Tesler also worked for the MBTA, Governor Jane Swift’s legal office, and the Office of the State Treasurer.

“Stephanie has led MassDOT through many difficult challenges over the past six years; from the historic blizzards that exposed the problems of the MBTA, through saving the GLX project, instituting a data-driven Capital Improvement Plan, and guiding the RMV through a crisis last summer,” Baker said. “We are so grateful for Stephanie’s service to the Commonwealth and congratulate her on her new appointment.”

“It has been a privilege to lead MassDOT’s exceptional team these last six years and to work with the MBTA’s senior leadership and the Fiscal and Management Control Board,” Pollack said. “Massachusetts has become a leader in delivering a transportation system that puts people first and provides them with safer and better choices for walking, biking, using transit, or driving, and I am confident that Jamey will be able to continue that good work.”

“I am honored by the trust the Governor and Lt. Governor are placing in me,” Tesler said. “Working with Secretary Pollack for most of the last five years has been a master class in transportation policy, and I am happy to be able to use that knowledge to continuing advancing the programs and policies we have been working on together for so long.”
