McAuliffe appoints six to transportation board

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe has named six new members to the Commonwealth Transportation Board.

The Democratic governor announced the appointments Thursday. Four of the new appointees replace board members whose terms expire June 30.

The 18-member recently presented its six-year, $13.1 billion plan for funding highway and transit projects. The board is scheduled to vote on the plan in July.

McAuliffe said he wanted to appoint board members who share his vision early enough to participate in the decision-making.

The new members are former state Del. Shannon Valentine of Lynchburg, former state Sen. Marty Williams of Richmond, former state Secretary of Education Jim Dyke of Reston, Roanoke Vice Mayor Court Rosen, former Deputy Secretary of Transportation Scott Kasprowicz of Middleburg and Center for Innovative Technology executive Henry Connors of Fredericksburg.

What is it with Democrats needing PEC board members on the Trans Board, when PEC opposes all roads?

The last time Scott K was on, as Kaine’s appointee, his signature effort was having the gov try to push the Tyson’s Metro tunnel under his (K’s) land—but it’s okay, he’s a GOOD developer—and bottleneck every other project in the region.

TerryMac may say he has no say in the BiCounty—Scott K will say it for him?

The guy had to resign the last time he was on after the tunnel peccadillo, then he went and flew his new helicopter around the world in search of a new speed record, after having built fuel dumps for the effort in the pristine wilds of the far north.

What a great environmentalist!

Get him off the CTB.  Seriously.
