Changes Noted in Top Ten List of PANYNJ Salary Earners names the highest paid executives at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and reports that the top ten list “has changed dramatically since last year, with several substitutions, raises among most holdovers, and the agency’s head lawyer knocking the executive director off the top spot” with an annual salary of $295,000. The newspaper notes that one major list change results from the elimination of the deputy executive director position, a post-Bridgegate leadership reform.
