Big Dig Critic and Former Vice Chair of Mass Turnpike, Christie Mihos, Dies

Boston Herald reports, “Christy Mihos, a former convenience store magnate whose fame as a Big Dig critic and two-time Massachusetts gubernatorial candidate was shadowed late in life by bankruptcy and a messy divorce, reportedly has died after a recent cancer diagnosis.” The report adds, “As vice chairman of the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority, he correctly predicted the project would run billions over budget and later penned a book, ‘Rotten to the Core: The Real Dirt on Boston’s Big Dig.’”
