The Florida Transportation Commission today selected nine applicants to interview replacements for state Transportation Department Secretary Stephanie Kopelousos. Kopelousos is leaving for a job as Clay County manager.
Gov. Rick Scott wanted Washington DC transportation consultant Tyler Duvall for the job. But he was not among the 4 who applied.
Instead, the commission will interview these nine applicants on Feb. 11 in Orlando:
Richard Anderson, Georgia Regional Transportation Authority; Thomas Conrecode of Collier Enterprises, Florida; Jorge Figueredo, Figuredo Solutions, Florida; state Rep. Rick Glorioso, R-Sarasota; Gordon Goodin, Bayside Development Co., Florida; Janet Kavinoky, U.S. Chamber of Commerce; Bernie Seel, Seel Jackson Consulting of Indiana; Thomas Sorel, Minnesota DOT; and Anath Prasad, Florida DOT.
