FDOT Hits Home Run with New District Secretary Hattaway

WMFE-FM's Mark Simpson filed a news story on PBS's Transportation Nation at THIS LINK about the Florida Department of Transportation's selection of Billy Hattaway as its new District 1 Secretary.  District 1 covers the State's sprawling southwest corner, from Winter Haven to Naples. 

Billy is a leading engineer, an avid bicyclist, and a nationally-known authority on Complete Streets.  Given the large number of retirees in southwest Florida who will need safer and more accessible thoroughfares when their driving days end, FDOT Secretary Prasad could not have made a more outstanding appointment.
