Statement from Governor Sonny Perdue Regarding Decision by the State Transportation Board to Dismiss Commissioner Evans

Governor Sonny Perdue issued the following statement today regarding the decision by the State Transportation Board to dismiss Georgia DOT Commissioner Gena Evans:

“Sadly, today the State Transportation Board proved that a majority of its members are more concerned with personal vendettas and politics than delivering value to citizens in transportation. While I am not privileged to the reasons behind their decision, I believe they have fired a competent Commissioner for no reason other than her commitment to put the needs of Georgia’s citizens ahead of board members’ personal agendas of spending taxpayer dollars on their individual projects. The Lt. Governor, Speaker and I are committed to creating a transportation system that allows the citizens to hold us accountable for moving Georgia where we need to go in transportation.”
