MoDoT top wonk is blogging with Schwarzenegger

In my day job as a journalist, I have repeatedly come up against people who have worked in close quarters with Missouri Department of Transportation Director Pete K. Rahn - these are tough, smart power players - and they tend to agree that he is a bright and capable leader.

So it comes as no surprise to me to learn that has been invited by National Journal to participate in a weekly blog on transportation issues.

In his most recent post, Pete is one of 20 wonks answering the question: How should the infrastructure stimulus be spent?

His fellow blogging wonks include California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (pictured), Transportation Secretary Mary Peters, former Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta, former Department of Transportation Inspector General Kenneth Mead, Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, Teamsters President James Hoffa and someone with the way cool moniker Phineas Baxandall.

National Journal is a Washington, D.C.-based, nonpartisan weekly magazine on public policy and politics.
