Capital Metro board appoints its 2018 officers

Wednesday, January 31, 2018 by Caleb Pritchard

The approval of the contract for a new CEO and president wasn’t the only leadership decision the Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority Board of Directors faced at its first meeting of the year on Monday. As happens every January, the board appointed its officers, this time returning Chair Wade Cooper to his seat. Additionally, board Secretary Juli Word kept her gig, and Vice Chair Delia Garza secured her first full term in that position, which she took over after former board member Beverly Silas resigned last year. The board also returned member Terry Mitchell to his chairmanship of its Finance, Audit and Administration Committee and Manor Mayor Rita Jonse was elevated to the top of the Operations and Planning Committee, a role she has held on an interim basis following Silas’ departure. Finally, the board also filled two of three vacancies on the Customer Satisfaction Advisory Committee. Lin Rui Li, nominated by Garza, and Elizabeth Stiehl, nominated by Cooper, will put the nine-person body one person shy of a full roster and render Mitchell the only board member without an appointee on it.
