Bhatt sworn in as DelDOT secretary

    Yesterday marked the swearing-in ceremony for Shailen Bhatt, Delaware’s new Secretary of Transportation.

    His first and main challenge: restoring DelDOT’s credibility.

    “We’re going to have to act more transparently.  We’re going to have to be ethical in our decision-making and more efficient with the choices that we make in this era of constrained resources,” Bhatt said yesterday.

    WHYY’s Mark Fowser covered yesterday’s ceremony, during which Bhatt outlined his strategy.
