Rep. Rich Glorioso, eight others to interview for top state transportation job

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.
