Bush picks new secretary of transportation
font size    

U.S. President George W. Bush has picked Mary Peters, a former Federal Highway Director, to succeed Norman Mineta as secretary of transportation, according to U.S. media reports Tuesday.

Peters, who headed the Federal Highway Administration from 2001 to 2005, will fill the cabinet post left open when Mineta left the job in July after six years on the job.

A formal announcement of the nomination will be made after the Senate returned from its August recess.

Mineta, the only Democrat in Bush's cabinet, played a vital leadership role in strengthening the security of seaports and airports.

Peters spent three years directing the Arizona Department of Transportation where she worked her way up through the ranks during a 16-year career there.
