Dwight Mattingly, chair of the Palm Tran Service Board for the last year, was reelected Thursday.
Mattingly was selected at the regular meeting of the advisory board for the county’s bus system.
Mattingly is himself a Palm Tran driver and for several years has been president of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1577, which represents drivers.
Andre Cadogan, a regular Palm Tran rider and a “citizen at large” board member, was nominated for
chair; he opted to vote for Mattingly, saying he was doing a good job. Cadogan is a Wellington engineer and is co-founder of the National Black Republican Coalition.
The board then elected Cadogan as vice chair without opposition.
