“Jim Hogan and Bill Lowe are exceptional leaders and have worked extremely well together these past two years,” said Executive Director Scott Green. “Both state commission delegations share that same sense of collaboration and cooperation. In the end, every commissioner is focused on ways to reach consensus for the good of the authority, its customers and stakeholders.”
