A reward for work well done? Perhaps.

Or not. You be the judge. Former Gov. Christie spokesman Michael Drewniak didn’t take too long to find employment after announcing a few days ago that he was leaving the Christie administration.

Now Drewniak will be joining NJ Transit. NorthJersey.com reports that Drewniak will oversee policy, strategic planning, technology, safety and capacity planning for the organization’s bus and train service. NJ Transit executive director Ronnie Hakim said, “Michael’s insights, broad perspective and knowledge will ensure that strategic initiatives at all levels of the organization are in line with our new direction and goals.”

NJ.com reports that Drewniak became a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in 1998, and stayed with Christie after he became governor. "I've always had an interest in transit,” Drewniak said. “It is something I've always dealt with when I was with the governor's office.”

The 53-year-old Drewniak is expected to start in the newly created position on April 1. According to NJBIZ, his salary will be $147,400, an increase from the $134,000 he made as Christie’s spokesman.
