McCartney’s Wife Resigns From NYC Transit Board

[photogallerylink id=89513 align=right] NEW YORK (AP) — Paul McCartney’s new bride is stepping down from the board of the authority that runs New York City’s public transit system.

Nancy Shevell married the Beatles great in October. She announced her resignation from the board of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority at its meeting Wednesday.

Shevell had been on the MTA’s board since 2001 and was one of its longest-serving members. Her term expired last year, but she had stayed on pending a new appointment by New York’s governor.

When she isn’t dating music legends or running subway systems, Shevell is a philanthropist. She was an executive at New England Motor Freight, a New Jersey trucking firm owned by her family.
