Governor Names New MNDOT Head

Governor Pawlenty named former federal highway official Tom Sorel to be the new Commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Transportation. Senate Minority Leader David Senjem said the Governor has made an excellent choice, the first MnDOT commissioner for decades with a college degree in engineering. Senjem said Sorel has more than 30 years of transportation experience including work on the light rail system in Salt Lake City before the Winter Olympics in 2002. Senjem said its time to put aside the rancor and bad feelings over what happened with Lieutenant Governor Carol Molnau and move forward.
