Colin Parrish, Gov. Rick Perry’s advisor for budget, planning and policy, has recently joined TTI’s Advisory Council. Parrish advises the governor on all transportation-related issues at the state, federal and international levels. He also serves on several advisory groups related to broad policy initiatives, finance and economic development.
Previously, Parrish served as an aide to the Texas Transportation Commission, the five-member board that oversees the Texas Department of Transportation. He was chief of staff to the Hon. Wayne Smith of the Texas House of Representatives. “In this role, he managed the legislative and committee process for significant regulatory, environmental and transportation-related legislation.”
“Colin’s experience in transportation policy matters adds significant value to our advisory council,” says Dennis Christiansen, TTI agency director. “We are extremely pleased that he has taken the time to participate, and we will welcome his advice as we seek to continually enhance our transportation research program.”
The TTI Advisory Council is comprised of a small group of high-level transportation leaders from across the state and from every sector of the transportation world. The council provides advice on transportation issues and trends and supports TTI’s research initiatives.
