Congratulations to Joe Tortorelli of the Spokane Area Good Roads Association and SRTC’s Transportation Advisory Committee. Governor Christine Gregoire appointed Joe to the Washington State Transportation Commission (WSTC) to fill a seat vacated by Latisha Hill, also of Spokane.
Tortorelli has a strong economic development background with 30+ years experience working with local government and private sector groups interested in growing the local economy and generating private sector capital investment. He says he became active in a variety of transportation organizations when he realized the connection between transportation and economic development.
As a member of the WSTC, Tortorelli will be a voting member of the SRTC’s Board of Directors. Here’s more information on the Transportation Commission if you’d like to know more about it.
