Former FAA Administrator Jane Garvey, who served on President Obama’s transportation transition team, has withdrawn her name from consideration for the post of deputy secretary of the Department of Transportation. After completing the first congressionally mandated five-year stint as FAA Administrator in 2002, she joined the high-powered international lobbying firm APCO Worldwide. Garvey, currently working at JPMorgan Public Finance, cited “personal concerns” for withdrawing from consideration for the number two DOT post.
