The following information was released by Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA).

Vice Chairman Greg Winterbottom was unanimously selected as the new chairman of the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) Board of Directors. Winterbottom replaces outgoing Chairman Paul Glaab.

“I’m honored to be chosen by my peers to lead an agency that is dedicated to enhancing transportation services in Orange County,” said Winterbottom. “I’m looking forward to serving as chairman on the board of directors and will continue our initiatives to improve mobility for all who live, work and visit this county.”

Winterbottom, a resident of Villa Park, brings more than 25 years of experience in transportation to the OCTA board, on which he has served since 1993 as one of two public members. He previously served as chairman in 2004.

In addition to his work on the OCTA board, he is currently chairman of the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC). The MSRC mission is to fund projects that reduce air pollution from vehicles within the South Coast Air District.

Replacing Winterbottom as vice chairman is Director Shawn Nelson, also the Fourth District Supervisor, who joined the board in 2010. Prior to being elected to the Orange County Board of Supervisors, Nelson served as the mayor of Fullerton in 2004-05 and 2006-07.

Also, sworn in as directors today for the first board meeting of the year were San Clemente Councilwoman Lori Donchak, Anaheim Councilwoman Gail Eastman, Garden Grove Councilman Steve Jones, First District Supervisor Janet Nguyen, Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido and Third District Supervisor Todd Spitzer.
