Two top mobility authority officials retiring
Monday, October 26, 2015 by Jo Clifton
The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority is losing two of its top officials. Deputy Executive Director Mario Espinoza is retiring at the end of December, and General Counsel Andy Martin has announced that he will be retiring in January. Both men have told the Austin Monitor that they will be looking for new career opportunities. Martin was city attorney for the city of Austin from 1994 to 2001 and held the same post for the city of San Antonio from 2002 to 2005. He returned to Austin in 2005 and worked for the Brown McCarroll law firm until 2010, when he went to work for the CTRMA. Espinoza’s career started with Price Waterhouse. From there he went to the city of Austin and worked in government relations before going to Austin Energy, where he became vice president of government relations. After more than 11 years with the city, Espinoza went to the Lower Colorado River Authority, and from there he joined the CTRMA in 2005. The agency has already hired Jeff Dailey, who will become deputy executive director upon Espinoza’s departure. According to his resume, Dailey comes to CTRMA with 32 years of experience in directing transportation and other infrastructure programs, including both public and private sector jobs. Dailey has served as chief engineer of the Illinois Tollway and assistant executive director of the North Texas Tollway Authority.
