Missouri Governor Mike Parson has appointed Andrea Jackson-Jennings to the Board of Commissioners. Jackson-Jennings, who has a doctorate in education, will serve as a representative for St. Louis County and replaces Commissioner Vernal Brown whose term expired. The Missouri Senate approved the appointment today.
“Congratulations to AJ on her appointment to the Bi-State Development Board of Commissioners by Governor Parson,” said St. Louis County Executive Dr. Sam Page. “AJ has built a career on helping others including her time as my Director of Human Services, and I know her experience and passion for public service will be of great value to the Bi-State Development board.”
The 10-member Board of Commissioners provides overall leadership and policy direction for Bi-State Development and its enterprises, and is compromised of five members from Illinois and five from Missouri.
