Davey Wants Greenway To Open Up Books On Finances
BOSTON (CBS) – State Transportation Secretary Richard Davey wants answers after the Rose Kennedy Greenway Executive Director fended off questions from reporters earlier this week asking that its financial records be made public.
Davey wrote a letter to Nancy Brennan Wednesday after she refused to talk about her reported $225,000 a year salary and how the organization handles its $4.7 million budget – half of which comes from the state.

“We asked for their most recent financial statements,” Davey told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 Thursday.
“We want to make sure that those quarterly reports have been filed and are up to date and then we also asked for any other items, employment contracts or other items, to make sure, again, that we have a full understanding of what the potential financial liabilities are of the organization.”
“We’ve given the Greenway until the close of business today to get us the information and I expect they’ll fully comply.”
