SouthWest Transit elects new commissioners
SouthWest Transit will have two new members on its seven-person commission.
Chaska City Council Member Jay Rohe and former Chaska Mayor Bob Roepke join the commission in 2013.
One elected official and one appointed citizen from each of the agency’s three founding cities — Chanhassen, Chaska and Eden Prairie — serve three-year terms. The seventh member is a rider representative who also serves a three-year term and is appointed by the commission members.
