James J. Eagan has the support of Erie County legislators to stay on the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority's Board of Commissioners for another five years.
The Legislature voted unanimously last week to ask Gov. Andrew Cuomo to reappoint Eagan, of Orchard Park, to a five-year term on the NFTA board. Legislators praised Eagan as "responsive" to their concerns and suggestions.
Of the 11-member NFTA board, one commissioner, by state law, is appointed by the governor upon the recommendation of the Erie County Legislature.
Eagan, executive vice president and a partner of Midwood Financial Services, has served on the NFTA's Board of Commissioners since 2008. His term expired June 30.
A Democrat, Eagan also served as finance chair for the election campaign of County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz last fall and served on the executive committee of Poloncarz's transition team.
