Bernhardt Takes the Lead for Transportation
February 1, 2011
Augusta, Maine – Governor Paul LePage today swore in David Bernhardt as acting commissioner of the Department of Transportation. Last week Governor LePage nominated Bernhardt to lead Maine’s transportation department.
Bernhardt has been employed by the state since 1984. Prior to his appointment, Bernhardt was the Director of Engineering and Operations for the Department of Transportation. “In a four year period, David saved the bureau ten-million dollars annually. That’s the kind of creative thinking we need from our leaders in Augusta,” said Governor LePage. “I appreciate the dedication David has given to the department over the years and I look forward to working with him within the Administration.”
The nomination will be considered by the Transportation Committee February 8.
