Highway Commission Selects New Chairman, Vice Chairman

JEFFERSON CITY - Duane Michie, Hayti, has taken over as the chairman of the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission for a one-year term that began today. The former chairman, Jim Anderson, Springfield, will serve as vice-chairman. Both Michie and Anderson, whose terms expire next March, have served on the commission since 2001.

The six-member bipartisan commission governs the Missouri Department of Transportation. MoDOT builds and maintains the nation's seventh-largest state highway system and supports other transportation modes in Missouri. The agency has about 6,300 employees and an annual budget of more than $2 billion.

"Things have really turned around at MoDOT," Michie said. "The department has made great strides to be more transparent and accountable to the citizens it serves. My goal is to keep operations moving in a positive direction and make sure we continue to deliver projects on time and within budget."

Michie is chairman of the Board of First State Bank & Trust Co., Inc., and president and chairman of the board of First State Bancorp Inc. of Caruthersville. Anderson is president of the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce. Other commission members are Bill McKenna, Crystal City; Mike Kehoe, Jefferson City; David Gach, St. Joseph; and Rudy Farber, Neosho.
