Missouri Gov. Mike Parson has appointed Rose Windmiller to the Bi-State Development's board.

Bi-State Development is the operator of Metro Transit-St. Louis, which operates light-rail, bus and paratransit services in the St. Louis area.

Windmiller is associate vice chancellor of government and community relations at Washington University in St. Louis. The former chairwoman of Citizens for Modern Transit, Windmiller also serves on the Presidential Advisory Committee of the Missouri Coordinating Board for Higher Education.

"Rose has long had an interest in public transportation and she provided valuable public service on the Ferguson Commission," said Bi-State Development President and Chief Executive Officer John Nations, referring to an independent group established by former Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon in the aftermath of the shooting death of Michael Brown Jr. in August 2014. "We are looking forward to her service on our Board of Commissioners."

The 10-member Bi-State Development Board of Commissioners is composed of five members from Illinois and five from Missouri.
