Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT)

Della Mosier brings more than 20 years of transportation in public works experience to her role at the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), ranging from mega-projects along the I-15 Resort corridor in Las Vegas, Nevada to pedestrian improvements in Sisters, Oregon.

Mosier spent the first decade of her career in the private sector as a consulting geotechnical engineer and then a roadway engineer. In 2010, she joined ODOT’s Bend Tech Center and held several leadership positions before joining the Urban Mobility Office as Deputy Director in 2020.

In her role at ODOT’s Urban Mobility Office, Mosier helps oversee the Urban Mobility Strategy, an innovative, cohesive approach to address congestion, safety, and aging infrastructure in the Portland metropolitan region. This includes the I-5 Rose Quarter Project, the Oregon Toll Program, I-205 Improvements, the Interstate Bridge Replacement Program, and more.

Mosier and her colleagues at the Urban Mobility Office are committed to “doing business differently” and incorporating equity and climate goals in their work to build a modern transportation system in Oregon’s largest metropolitan region.

Paul Savas

Clackamas County Commissioner

Paul has been involved in local government and civic organizations for years and brings experience as the owner of a small business in Clackamas County for over 25 years. With that background, Paul saw first-hand the ability of local government to affect the daily lives of residents and business owners. As a resident of an unincorporated area of Clackamas County, he was concerned with a lack of effective public processes for land use applications. That led to his involvement in several local governing boards and committees, where he used his personal experiences to ensure effective public engagement and decision-making for all community members.
