The White House has withdrawn former MBTA general manager Beverly Scott's nomination to serve on the National Transportation Safety Board.
According to State House News Service, the White House press office made the announcement around 7 p.m. Monday that Scott's nomination had been withdrawn.
On July 30, President Obama nominated Scott to fill a spot on the board with five seats. Subject to confirmation by the Senate, Scott would have served for five term years through Dec. 31, 2019.
Scott resigned as general manager of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority last winter amid snow and cold-induced service problems.
