Pa. Turnpike Commission CEO to resign

    Roger E. Nutt, the CEO of the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, will resign at the end of the month.

    The Inquirer reports COO Craig Shuey will server as the acting CEO until a permanent replacement is found.

     

    Nutt said he is stepping down amid health concerns, not because of the state auditor general’s scrutiny of the commission. He’s the father of Brian Nutt, Gov. Tom Corbett’s campaign manager, and left the retired life behind in 2011 to lead the Turnpike Commission. In a letter sent to turnpike officials, the 72-year-old mentioned fatigue and stress prevent him from doing all the job requires.
