Michael Ronkin at an OPBAC
Lyons previously worked alongside Ronkin as ODOT's bicycle and pedestrian facilities specialist and served two years on the BTA Board of Directors (more on her hiring on the BTA Blog). In addition to overseeing ODOT's bike and ped programs, Sheila will also head the Oregon Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (OBPAC), an eight-member committee who acts as a liaison between the public and ODOT.
I've touched base with Sheila on several issues and each time I've found her to be a smart, open-minded and sincere advo-crat and I look forward to working with her in the future.
