At its first Commission meeting of 2015, the Alameda County Transportation Commission unanimously re-elected Supervisor Scott Haggerty as its chair, and Oakland City Councilmember At-Large Rebecca Kaplan as vice chair.
“I am deeply honored to be elected to serve a third term as chair of the Alameda County Transportation Commission,” says Chair Scott Haggerty. “It is a great privilege to have the confidence and partnership of my colleagues and to guide Alameda CTC in meeting its commitment to deliver programs and projects outlined in our voter-approved transportation measures. I am also proud that Alameda CTC has become a model for other counties, as we strive to effectively address the transportation needs of our residents and local economy, including reducing traffic congestion, improving mobility for bicyclists and pedestrians of all ages and abilities, maintaining our transportation infrastructure and systems, and assisting in efforts to meet the demands on the regional transportation network.”
“I’m excited to once again be part of the leadership of Alameda CTC as we deliver our promise to the voters to improve our local streets, implement safer bicycle/pedestrian plans and expand programs that support mobility of students, seniors and people with disabilities,” says Vice Chair Rebecca Kaplan.
