Omnitrans Board Elects New Chair, Vice Chair
June 15, 2021
At its monthly meeting last week, the Omnitrans Board of Directors elected current Vice Chair and Mayor of Montclair Javier “John” Dutrey of Montclair to its Chair position, and current Board Member and Mayor of Grand Terrace Darcy McNaboe to the position of Vice Chair. The offices will take effect July 1 for a period of two years.
“Both John and Darcy have a lengthy history of dedication to and support of Omnitrans,” said CEO/General Manager Erin Rogers after the meeting. “As we emerge from a challenging year, I look forward to partnering with the Board under their leadership to provide innovative mobility solutions to connect our region.”
Dutrey, who has served as an Omnitrans Board alternate since 2003 and has been an active member since 2017, was first elected to the Montclair City Council in 1996. His professional career included both public and private sector work in real estate, urban planning, economic development and affordable housing. In addition to his work for Omnitrans, Dutrey serves on the San Bernardino County Transportation Authority (SBCTA) governing board, the Southern California Association of Government’s Transportation Committee, and the Foothill Gold Line Joint Powers Authority board.
“I’m honored to have been elected as Chair of the Omnitrans Board,” said Dutrey of his new position. “Public transit is a vital public service, and I look forward to working with my fellow Board members and Omnitrans’ results-focused staff to rebuild ridership and engage our community.”
McNaboe also has an impressive record of public service, having served on the Grand Terrace City Council since 2010. A nearly three-year veteran of the Omnitrans Board, she also is principal and founder of Village Enterprises, a local business and marketing firm, and represents The Community Foundation as its Charitable Giving Officer for San Bernardino County. McNaboe serves as Director of the California Joint Powers Insurance Authority, is an SBCTA Board Member, and is past president of the La Sierra Business Council of the Greater Riverside Chamber of Commerce.
Said McNaboe of her election, “Omnitrans has ambitious goals for the year ahead, and I look forward to working with its team to achieve success and enhance the quality of life in our region.”
