McCoy named to lead CAMPO

Monday, October 11, 2010 by Kimberly Reeves

Members of the transportation policy board of the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Authority (CAMPO) named Maureen McCoy as the new director tonight after motions to delay the decision and repost the position failed.


The board interviewed McCoy and Douglas Weirsig. Ashby Johnson, the third candidate invited to attend tonight’s interview, pulled out within the last 24 hours.

McCoy has served as deputy director at CAMPO and is the current interim director.


Weirsig, now with Jacobs Engineering in Houston, formerly worked in transportation at the City of Houston and was on the short list for director of the North Texas Tollway Authority.


A representative from the city’s human resources department will negotiate salary.
