After reading some very imaginative interpretations of what the county’s transportation board is, isn’t or should be, I feel compelled as recently elected board chair to try and dispel any misinformation about what the board is and what it is intended to be.
The Los Alamos Transportation Board is a volunteer organization. Like each board and commission, the job of the TB is to work with staff, review issues in the interest of the particular board, take public comment and make recommendations to council.
These recommendations do not have to be a reflection of public sentiment — the boards have the independence to act in what the board feels is giving its best advice.
The TB is staffed by county residents with a range of occupations and interests. None of the current members are traffic engineers (though Charlie Trask was on for a while), nor do they necessarily have any engineering credentials.
It is a citizen board that attempts to guide county transportation policy in the best interests of the community.
TB members might work full-time and might be involved in activities related to church, family, athletics, music, travel, hobbies, etc.
