Parson Appoints Webster Groves Woman to Bi-State Board

By on July 3, 2018

From St. Louis Post-Dispatch:  Nearly a year after top St. Louis officials called for a shake-up of the board that oversees MetroLink, Gov. Mike Parson has appointed a Webster Groves woman to the panel.

In an announcement Monday, Parson named Rose Windmiller to the 10-member board comprising five Illinois appointees and five Missouri appointees.

Windmiller is the associate vice chancellor of government and community relations at Washington University in St. Louis. She holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Missouri-St. Louis and a master’s degree in public administration from St. Louis University.

She previously served on a special state panel as one of 16 members of the Ferguson Commission, which was formed by former Gov. Jay Nixon to address the “social and economic conditions” highlighted by protests after the 2014 killing of Michael Brown by former Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson.

Windmiller’s appointment comes after a 2017 announcement by St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger and St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson that they had submitted panels of nominees to former Gov. Eric Greitens to replace four Missouri members on the Bi-State Development Agency board whose terms have expired and to fill one vacancy.
