I don't know much about him, but Leif A. Dormsjo is going to be Bowser's DDOT Director.
Bowser announced more appointments to her administration Thursday, including a transportation director. Leif A. Dormsjo will come to the District from Maryland state government, where he has served since 2007 — most recently as a deputy transportation secretary overseeing planning and project management.
Pending council approval, Dormsjo will take the helm of a Transportation Department that has successfully expanded non-automobile options for city residents in recent years — including new buses and bicycle amenities — but has struggled to bring the long-anticipated and closely watched streetcar line along H Street and Benning Road NE to fruition.
Any Maryland people have thoughts to share? He spoke at Baltimore's bike to work day in 2010.
