RTD, TriMet add board members

The Regional Transportation District of Denver (RTD) and Tri-County Metropolitan Transportation District of Oregon (TriMet) have appointed new members to their boards.

Kathi Williams has been appointed by the Adams County board to succeed RTD board member Ken Riley, who resigned. Williams will serve until the next regular RTD board election in November. Williams, who served on RTD’s board in the 1980s, has a background in real estate and is a former state legislator.

Meanwhile, Bruce Warner and Travis Stovall will begin their new terms on TriMet’s board this week.

Warner, who will represent Washington County, has had a long career in public policy and transportation in Oregon. Most recently, he served as interim city manager of Hillsboro, Ore., and before that was director of the Portland Development Commission. He also served as director of the Oregon Department of Transportation and director of Washington County’s Land Use and Transportation.

Stovall, who will represent east Multnomah County, currently serves as executive director of the East Metro Economic Alliance. He previously was president of the Gresham Chamber of Commerce.
