STATE SENATE OKS GIOIA AS NFTA CHIEF

Robert Gioia was confirmed by the State Senate Tuesday as the new chairman of the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority.

The Senate approved Gov. Cuomo's nominee for a seven-year term. Gioia, 41, will replace Raymond Gallagher, who resigned Nov. 27 after investigations into political coercion of NFTA employees.

Under Gioia, the chairman's job will become a part-time position with an annual salary of $15,000. It was a full-time job with an annual salary of $72,000.
