Kitchen joins Capital Metro board
Friday, May 1, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano
If you didn’t deduce it from our recent story, this past Tuesday City Council Member Ann Kitchen was sworn in as a member of the Capital Metro board of directors. She replaces former Council Member (and board chairman) Mike Martinez and will finish out his term, which expires June 1, 2016. Kitchen was selected by the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization to serve on the board. CAMPO has also reappointed board member Terry Mitchell. Mitchell, whose original term expires June 1, is CAMPO’s financial appointee. In a news release, Capital Metro President/CEO Linda Watson welcomed Kitchen, saying, “From (Kitchen’s) time as a state representative to her role representing District 5 and serving as chair of the Mobility Committee, Capital Metro is gaining a wealth of knowledge that will benefit everyone in Austin.” Watson also recognized Martinez’s contributions. “During his time with Capital Metro, Mike Martinez gave everything he had toward improving the lives of all Austinites,” Watson said. “We’re sad to see him go, but we’ll be forever thankful for all he did in setting Capital Metro up for continued success in the future.”
