Yesterday I attended Sam Adams’ second Transportation Operations Steering group meeting. A long, involved discussion of the nitty gritty of snow and ice response. Not particularly newsworthy, except it’s good to see our public officials focused on serving the customer well.
The news of the meeting is that Sam announced that Sue Kiel, who for 18 months has been the interim Director of PDOT, is now permanent.
For the last 18 months I’ve found Sue to be quietly but solidly competent in leading the Office of Transportation. It’s good to know that she’ll be sticking around.
