The Los Angeles Times reports that Joe Hedges, the chief operating officer of the California High-Speed Rail Authority, is no longer employed with the agency.
The agency and an outside law firm have been investigating Hedges for several months. The investigation was initiated by a state employee’s anonymous letter accusing Hedges of making large, unjustified payments to some project contractors. Hedges departed suddenly this week.
CHSRA spokeswoman Melissa Figueroa announced Tuesday that “Monday was Chief Operating Officer Joe Hedges’ last day with the California High Speed Rail Authority. Until a permanent replacement is appointed by the Governor, CEO Brian Kelly is making necessary personnel moves internally to ensure continued progress on construction in the Central Valley.”
