First transportation facilities commission begins tenure

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The first commissioner of the state Division of Multimodal Transportation Facilities began her tenure Saturday.

Secretary of Transportation Jimmy Wriston appointed Cindy Butler as commissioner, a position created when Gov. Jim Justice approved the creation of the Division of Multimodal Transportation Facilities in March.

“Cindy started out in transportation in Division of Highway’s District 5 many years ago,” Wriston said. “She moved to the State Rail Authority (SRA) as their comptroller and they got better immediately. When she was chosen as the Executive Director of the SRA, in just a few short years, she transformed the entire agency from a seat of the pants operation to a well oiled, efficient, well managed Division. I’m expecting no less with the new multimodal agency. I know she’ll do a great job.”

The division includes the state Port Authority, Aeronautics Commission, Division of Public Transit and State Rail Authority.
