GUEST SPEAKER

 

 Governor Gretchen Whitmer

 

As Michigan's Governor, Gretchen Whitmer is committed to solving problems for Michiganders across the state. Under her leadership, that means expanding access to affordable healthcare, improving education and skills training, respecting working families, cleaning up Michigan's drinking water, and of course, fixing the roads.


 

Paul C. Ajegba, P.E.

Director of the Michigan Department of Transportation 

 

Paul C. Ajegba has 28 years of experience with the Michigan Department of Transportation and was appointed as director on Jan. 1, 2019. He previously served for three months as Metro Region engineer and before that as University Region engineer. During his seven years in the University Region, Ajegba oversaw his team's involvement in the planning, design and construction of several major projects, including the US-23 Flex Route - a project nominated for the America's Transportation Award, landing among the top 12 national finalists.
