Bethesda delegate taking post with U.S. Department of Transportation
Bronrott to depart House this month, work in Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration
ANNAPOLIS Del. William Bronrott is leaving the House of Delegates to take a job with the U.S. Department of Transportation. He will become the deputy administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
"This is a natural extension of my three-decade involvement in highway and auto safety," Bronrott said Thursday. "It was a perfect fit for me at the right time."
Bronrott (D-Dist. 16) of Bethesda, who plans to leave the House on April 26, is finishing his third term as a delegate.
Bronrott will be working with two former Maryland transportation officials. Anne Ferro, the former Motor Vehicle Administration director, is the administrator of the carrier safety administration. John Porcari, former Maryland Transportation secretary, is the deputy secretary of the department.
"There is no one I respect more from my 12-year career here than Anne Ferro and John Porcari," Bronrott said.
Before his first election in 1998, Bronrott was press secretary and transportation adviser for former Rep. Michael D. Barnes.
