The Virginia Railway Express (VRE) Operations Board instilled its 2015 slate of officers at its monthly meeting. The following were unanimously approved by the Operations Board in December and took on their new roles: Supervisor John Cook (R-Braddock), as chairman; Gary Skinner, Spotsylvania County Supervisor, as vice chairman; Paul Smedberg, City of Alexandria Councilor, as secretary; Maureen Caddigan, Prince William County Supervisor, as treasurer. “Having such respected and knowledgeable public officials that really care about improving transportation serve as VRE Operations Board officers is a recipe for VRE’s continued success,” said Doug Allen, CEO of VRE.
VRE is the tenth largest commuter rail service in the U.S. and is a transportation partnership of the Northern Virginia and Potomac & Rappahannock Transportation Commissions.
