Monterey-Salinas Transit (MST) Board of Directors
On Monday, July 9, King City Mayor Mike LeBarre was elected as Chair of the Monterey-Salinas Transit Board of Directors.
City of Monterey Councilmember Dan Albert was elected to take over LeBarre’s position as Vice-Chair. Outgoing Chair and Salinas Councilmember Tony Barrera made the announcement at MST’s monthly Board of Directors meeting. He noted that votes for both positions had been unanimous.
“MST is focused on the community, on safety, and improving the quality of life for all,” said LeBarre. “I am honored to represent such a great agency as MST.”
LeBarre served as Vice-Chair since July 2016 and will serve as Chair until July 2020.
“As Vice-Chair I learned a lot from Mr. Barrera, and as Chair I will continue his leadership on meeting the needs of the people we serve,” LeBarre said.
MST’s official name is Monterey-Salinas Transit District. This special-purpose district is governed by a thirteen-member Board of Directors made up of elected representatives from each of the twelve cities in Monterey county plus an additional representative from the Monterey County Board of Supervisors. The MST Board of Directors appoints MST’s general manager, the role currently filled by Carl Sedoryk.
