Joey Hood was the late Transportation Commissioner Bill Minor’s assistant at MDOT for part of his 17-year career at the agency.
He is seeking the post vacated when Minor died in November of 2010. The post will be filled in a special election Tuesday, Jan. 11.
Hood said he would see his election to the transportation commissioner post of the northern district as a continuation of Minor’s work.
“I want to keep doing it just as he was doing it,” Hood said.
