New WSDOT Secretary of Transportation To Attend SRTC Board Meeting

Last week I posted a link to the agenda for this Thursday's SRTC Policy Board meeting. Well, there's been a change to that agenda because late yesterday we confirmed that WSDOT’s new Secretary of Transportation Lynn Peterson will be attending the meeting, on only her fourth day of work in the new positions!

Peterson will briefly meet with the Board and to provide a few comments on her new role, although she won't be taking questions or public comment. Please plan on joining us to welcome Lynn to Eastern Washington.
