San Bernardino County Transportation Authority (SBCTA) will host its annual General Assembly Gala on June 15, 2017 at the Citizen Bank Arena in Ontario. The General Assembly is an opportunity for elected officials and community leaders from the region to gather and celebrate the year’s transportation accomplishments as well as the annual installation of the Board’s new President.
SBCTA is responsible for cooperative regional planning and furthering an efficient multi-modal transportation system countywide. SBCTA administers Measure I, the half-cent transportation sales tax approved by county voters in 1989, and supports freeway construction projects, regional and local road improvements, train and bus transportation, railroad crossings, call boxes, ridesharing, congestion management efforts, and long-term planning studies.
This year’s General Assembly will feature keynote speaker Anna Escobedo Cabral. Ms. Cabral currently serves as the Unit Chief for Strategic Communications in the External Relations Department of the Inter-American Development Bank. Prior to joining the bank, Ms. Cabral, originally from San Bernardino County, served as the 42nd Treasurer of the United States and became the highest-ranking Latina in the George W. Bush Administration.
