Still No Word on the CTB Board Appointments

The Kaine administration has made another raft of appointments, filling board positions from the State Council on Higher Education in Virginia (SCHEV) to the Frontier Culture Museum of Virginia. But there’s still no word on the five empty slots at the Commonwealth Transportation Board, the website of which still lists the names, addresses and photos of the expired board members.

It’s been more than a year since Philip Shucet resigned as commissioner of the Virginia Department of Transportation, and a search is still underway for his replacement — a fact that the Virginian-Pilot noted a few days ago and attributed in part to intense competition for qualified candidates due to a surfeit of major construction projects around the world, from Iraq to China to Las Vegas.

I can buy that argument, but I haven’t come across an explanation yet that explains the delay in filling the CTB positions.
