MO Governor Appoints former CMT Board Chair to Bi-State Development Board

Governor Parson named former CMT Board President Rose Windmiller to the 10-member Bi-State Development Agency of the Missouri-Illinois Metropolitan District board comprised of five Illinois appointees and five Missouri appointees.

Windmiller is the associate vice chancellor of government and community relations at Washington University in St. Louis. She holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Missouri-St. Louis and a master’s degree in public administration from St. Louis University.

Windmiller previously served on the CMT board of directors for more than a decade, serving as chair for the past five years, until June 2018.  Additionally, Windmiller served on a special state panel as one of 16 members of the Ferguson Commission, which was formed by former Gov. Jay Nixon.

Windmiller, who was nominated by both Stenger and Krewson, will fill an existing vacancy on the board.

Because Parson made his appointment when the Legislature is out of session, Windmiller can begin serving immediately. She will then come up for confirmation when the Senate reconvenes.
