WCTA Breakfast | July 10 | 730-900 am

The demands on our transportation infrastructure are enormous.  How do we improve sustainability, create jobs, reduce greenhouse gases, complete big transportation projectsand manage challenging budgets.  WSDOT Lynn Peterson will share her vision of our future.  A respondent panel will follow.

--Lynn Peterson is Washington State's Secretary of Transportation and heads the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT).  She was appointed Secretary of Transportation in 2013 by Governor Inslee. Peterson manages an agency of 6,600 employees, with responsibility for 18,600 lane miles of highway, 3,700 bridges, general aviation airports, passenger- and freight-rail programs, and the nation's largest ferry system.  As WSDOT nears completion of the agency's largest construction program in its history ($16.3 billion), Peterson brings a renewed focus on sustainable transportation investments.  She supports WSDOT's partnerships with cities and counties, businesses, transit, non-motorized transportation, and environmental organizations to cost-effectively build safe and healthy communities. Before joining WSDOT, Peterson served as Oregon Governor Kitzhaber's Sustainable Communities and Transportation policy advisor.  She is the former chair of the Clackamas County Commission and a nationally recognized transportation and land-use integration expert. In her role with Gov. Kitzhaber's administration, Peterson led policy efforts on building a safe, complete and low-carbon transportation system and linking transportation investments to Oregon's economy, housing needs, health and sustainability. Prior to serving on the Clackamas Commission, Peterson worked as a transportation consultant and as a strategic planning manager for TriMet, Portland's regional transportation agency. She was also a transportation advocate for 1000 Friends of Oregon and a transportation planner for Metro, the regional government for the Portland metropolitan area. Peterson holds a degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from  Wisconsin-Madison and two Masters degrees from Portland State in Civil and Environmental Engineering and Urban and Regional Planning.
