Thanks Mr. Administrator!
Very sweet. Today, the Oregon Federal Highways Administration director, Phil Ditzler, met me for coffee and brought along this nice plaque and a letter from FHWA Administrator Victor Mendez. Such a nice thing to do!
“During your career, you served as a consummate partner to FHWA. The innovative spirit you brought to regional transportation policy reform leaves a lasting legacy of success and progress to the Federal-aid highway program. You displayed a high level of integrity as a steward of public funds and have greatly influenced your peers. Your significant contributions have created a culture of partnership, cooperation and excellence…”
If I was able to do half of this, its through the good intentions and efforts of many. Thanks, Phil and thanks, FHWA.
