Also at the commission's meeting last week, Ventura City Councilman Jack Tingstrom was elected vice chairman of the commission. He will rotate into the chairman's position in February 1999.
Grasmehr served her first term on the commission as a citizens representative of the cities from 1989 to 1994.
In 1996, the Thousand Oaks attorney began serving as the citizens representative for the county.
The Ventura County Transportation Committee was created in 1988 and became operational in 1989, assuming the resources and transportation responsibilities of the Ventura County Assn. of Governments.
