Milde Head of VRE Board in 2014
STAFFORD, Va. — A Stafford County official will have the head seat on the Virginia Railway Express Operations Board this year.
Aquia District Supervisor Paul Milde will also serve as VRE’s Board chief for the second time in his political career. Milde last served as VRE Board Chairman in 2010 and is only the second Stafford County leader to serve in the position, following Stafford Supervisor Robert Gibbons who served on the VRE Board in 2002.
“I am honored that my peers elected me as chairman once again,” Mr. Milde said. “VRE has had a successful year in 2013, and I am looking forward to working with Chief Executive Officer Doug Allen to enhance our services this year as we continue to look for ways to make mass transit easier for our commuters.”
A longtime member of the VRE Board, Milde helped oversee the expansion of parking lots at both the Leeland and Brooke VRE stations in Stafford County, on the commuter rail system’s Fredericksburg line, increasing capacity at those lots to 400 and 700 spaces, respectively.
