LICA sends hearty congratulations to Ron Epstein on being appointed Executive Deputy Commissioner by NYSDOT Acting Commissioner Paul Karas. Ron has served as the DOT’s Chief Financial Offer and Assistant Commissioner for Policy and Planning over the past five years, and previously as a director of DOT’s Public Transportation Bureau. His experience also includes 20 years of active engagement with federal transportation authorization and Congressional appropriations processes. Ron has always been responsive and helpful to LICA, whenever budgetary issues or questions arose. His extensive knowledge, talent and experience, make him an excellent choice for this position and we look forward to working with Ron more closely in the future. Ron will also continue to serve as DOT CFO.

Karas also appointed another DOT team member, Todd Westhuis, to serve as Chief of Staff. Todd has most recently been serving as NYSDOT Director of Region 8. We look forward to meeting and working with the Commissioner and his new team in the near future.
