Gov. Hochul recently named four new appointees to a Stretch Limousine Passenger Safety Task Force, established to recommend safety improvements to the limo industry. The appointments are set to revive the 11-member task force, which failed to get on track after the legislation creating it was signed into law in Feb. 2020 by former Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo.

The new members include Joan McDonald, Westchester County’s director of operations, and Matthew J. Driscoll, executive director at the State Thruway Authority. Two others appointed by the governor are David J. Brown, president and CEO at Premiere Transportation, and Edward Stoppelmann, co-owner of Red Oak Transportation.
