Public transportation services are about to see major changes in service provisions along with a boost in funds from the state. My name is Vince Portulano, and I’m seeking a seat on the new Douglas County Transportation District, and am seeking your support because I believe I can work with the new board in establishing this new transportation district.

UTRANS and Douglas Rides will see a transformation in their operations and an expansion of services throughout all of Douglas County. We’ll need to make sure both services will be available for easy access for the outer reaches of the county.

I believe I can bring a level of knowledge and experience to the board, since I currently hold office in two elected boards. I’ve seen how special district boards function by listening to all facets of the communities and by partaking in their operations. I have a masters degree in public administration, where I learned how different agencies work and how they coordinate their services.

There are some other candidates I highly recommend you vote for besides myself in this election for the new board:

  • Jennifer Bragg
  • Stuart Liebowitz
  • Kat Stone
  • Mark Hendershott
  • John Campbell
  • John Ficker

Vote by Nov. 6.

Vincent Portulano is a candidate for Douglas County Transportation District Board.
