Queen Anne's County Commissioner Appointed to Head Md. Transit Administration


CENTREVILLE, Md. – Governor Larry Hogan has selected a Queen Anne's County Commissioner to be the next administrator of the Department of Transportation's Maryland Transit Administration.

Paul Comfort will leave his current post as vice president of the Queen Anne's County Commissioners to focus his energy full time to the MTA beginning May 11.

“Paul will be a great asset to the State by ensuring we deliver an effective transit system that all Marylanders can count on,” Gov. Hogan said Friday. “He understands transit's key role to supporting economic development and job growth across the state.”

According to the governor's office, Comfort has served for the past five years as the assistant project manager and director of operations for MV Transportation, which operates paratransit services for Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority. As a county commissioner, he has also overseen public transit operations for a number of private sector transit companies and in local governments.

On Friday Comfort thanked the governor and the secretary of transportation for their appointment.

“My focus will be on providing safe, efficient and reliable transportation in the Baltimore and Washington area and around the state with an optimal passenger experience and world class customer service,” he said.

The public is invited to attend a reception in Comfort's honor on Tuesday at 5 p.m. in the Commissioner's Meeting Room at the Liberty Building in Centreville. This will be Comfort's last regularly scheduled County Commissioners meeting before he starts his new position.
