MoDOT Director Welcomes Stephen R. Miller to Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission
JEFFERSON CITY - Missouri Department of Transportation Director Pete Rahn today welcomed Stephen R. Miller of Kansas City to the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission. Miller was appointed by Governor Jay Nixon.
"Mr. Miller's impressive background and considerable knowledge of transportation issues make him a valuable addition to the commission," Rahn said. "I look forward to working closely with him to ensure that Missouri's transportation system continues to improve and to tackle the significant challenges we will face in the very near future."
Miller is an attorney with the law firm of Miller Schirger and has more than 25 years experience in construction law. He will fill the vacancy left by the resignation of Mike Kehoe of Jefferson City and will complete his term, which runs through March 1, 2011.
The Missouri Highways and Transportation is a six-member citizens' panel that governs MoDOT. It can have no more than three members from any one political party. Miller is a Republican.
Members are appointed to staggered six-year terms by the governor and must be confirmed by the senate. Miller will take his place on the commission immediately. He will be subject to confirmation by the senate when it reconvenes in January.
Other members of the commission are Chairman David Gach, St. Joseph; Vice-Chairman Rudy Farber, Neosho; Grace Nichols, St. Charles; Joe Carmichael, Springfield; and Duane Michie, Caruthersville.
