Central Texas Toll Shark elected to board of international toll association

When I read this crap it makes me feel like I'm going to throw up in my mouth. Read the TRUTH (my report from 2006) about Mike Heiligenstein HERE.

Mike Heiligenstein elected to board of international toll association

Austin Business Journal

Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority Executive Director Mike Heiligenstein has been elected to the board of directors of the International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association, the worldwide association for toll facility owners and operators and businesses that support them.

Heiligenstein's term on the board will extend through 2012.

"As the dynamic leader of an innovative and highly successful startup toll agency, Heiligenstein has been a tireless advocate for addressing transportation funding challenges," says Patrick Jones, executive director and CEO of IBTTA. "With his knowledge, experience and vision, Mike will be a tremendous addition to the Board."

Heiligenstein has been at CTRMA since its creation in 2003 and oversaw the financing and construction of the independent agency's first toll road, 183A, which opened in March 2007. Heiligenstein has advocated innovative funding mechanisms to make $1.5 billion available for regional transportation.

"As more and more communities face the harsh reality of funding shortfalls, tolling is going to play a greater role in financing transportation," Heiligenstein says. "As communities struggle with the problem, I want IBTTA to be a resource they can turn to."

Prior to joining CTRMA, Heiligenstein spent more than 23 years in public service, first as a Round Rock city councilman and later as a Williamson County commissioner. He served as chair of the Clean Air Force, was a founding board member and two-time vice chair of the Austin-San Antonio Corridor Council, a founding member and board member of Envision Central Texas, and a member of the Air and Water Quality Subcommittee of the National Association of Counties.

if he's not stopped he'll be far richer than Bill Gates, and at our expense. At least Gates gave us 30 years of products, many that were great and a few that sucked.

A person who cannot or will not keep their own affairs in order should not be a trustee for the public.

The IBTTA appears to be an international loan-shark operation with grandiose schemes to extend pilfering not only from current individuals but also the descendants of their victims. Weasels like Mike Heilingenstein perfectly epitomize the saying "birds of a feather flock together." Guilt by association flags the IBTTA consortium as a despicable ENRON analogy.
