Bill Moad has been selected to chair the Idaho Transportation Board. Moad is a former fleet operations manager at Simplot Co. and a past president of the Idaho Trucking Association. Moad’s appointment will take effect in July.

“I took great care in filling these important positions,” Governor Little said. “I have the utmost confidence in the leadership and discretion Karen and Bill will provide in these vital roles.”

Megan Kiska is appointed to the Idaho House of Representatives District 21 Seat B. Kiska works as the Inspector General and Real Property Officer for the 124th Fighter Wing in the Idaho Air National Guard. She is a graduate of California State University, Hayward.
