Ben Franklin Transit’s Board meeting on December 9 marked the end of service for two board members.
Lisa Stade, current BFT Board Vice Chair, will be leaving after nearly nine years of service. In addition to her roles as Benton City Councilwoman, educator, and coach,
Stade served on BFT’s Board of Directors since January of 2013.
In addition, Reuben Alvarado recently announced his resignation from the
Pasco City Council. Mr. Alvarado served on BFT’s Board since January of 2020 and
is Chair of the Transit Operations and Maintenance Committee.
Director Alvarado, currently Community Impact Manager for the Broetje Family Trust, has accepted a new leadership position with Communities in School in Walla Walla.
As Director Stade and Alvarado’s terms come to a close, we’d like to express our sincere gratitude for their service. BFT has come a long way during their tenure,
and we are grateful for their dedication and generosity of time.
Thank you, Directors Stade and Alvarado!
