New Chair, Vice Chair for Highways and Transportation Commission

JEFFERSON CITY - The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission changed leadership today.  Lloyd J. "Joe" Carmichael, Springfield, will serve as the commission's chair for the next year, while Stephen R. "Steve" Miller, Kansas City, will assume the position of vice chair.   

Carmichael was appointed to the commission in May 2009.  Miller has served on the commission since August 2009.  The terms on the commission of previous chair Rudy Farber and vice chair Grace Nichols formally expire this month.  They will continue to serve as commissioners until the Governor appoints replacements.

"I want to thank Rudy and Grace for their leadership the past two years," Carmichael said.  "Rudy has been instrumental in getting a conversation going to solve Missouri's transportation funding problem, and Grace was our chair during the implementation of the Bolder Five-Year Direction.  Missourians will benefit greatly from their strong leadership for years to come."

"Joe and Steve are proven leaders who take their roles as representing all areas of the state seriously," said MoDOT Director Kevin Keith.  "I look forward to working with them as we continue to search for long-term solutions to our state and federal transportation funding problems."

Carmichael is president and managing partner for the Springfield law firm of Carmichael & Neal, P.C.  Miller is a partner of the Kansas City law firm, Miller Schirger, LLC.

The six-member bipartisan commission governs the Missouri Department of Transportation, the agency responsible for building and maintaining the state highway system and supporting other transportation modes in Missouri.

Kenneth Suelthaus, St. Louis, also serves on the commission.  The commission currently has one vacancy waiting for appointment by the Governor.
