Rep. Murphy Hosts Legendary Testifier to Transportation Committee

St. Paul, Minnesota — This week Representative Tom Murphy had the opportunity to bring Rick West to testify in the Transportation Finance and Policy Committee. The committee was hearing HF 975 which would update the procedures around the retrieval of contents when a vehicle is impounded. Rick has served Otter Tail County for over 30 years notably as the county Highway Department Engineer, and as Public Works Director. He is a well-respected figure in the Minnesota transportation community and is recognized nationally as an innovator in the Toward Zero Deaths national safety standards.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to work alongside a legendary and well-respected public servant.” Said Representative Murphy on Mr. West joining the committee to testify this week. “I look forward to carrying on the legacy of respected public service that Otter Tail Country is known for.”
