Marie new nominee as Connecticut DOT commissioner


Connecticut Gov. Jodi Rell recently nominated Joseph Marie as commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Transportation.

He currently is the director of operations and maintenance for Phoenix’s Valley Metro, and is directing the start up of the $1.4 billion Central Phoenix/East Valley Rail System.

Previously assistant general manger of operations for the Twin Cities’ Metro Transit, Marie also has held senior transportation positions in the states of Pennsylvania and Massachusetts.

“[He] is a seasoned, proven administrator with a strong background in public transit, which really is the future of transportation in Connecticut,” Rell said in a prepared statement.

Pending legislative approval, the appointment will take effect in June.
