Two new MWAA board members confirmed

The U.S. Senate confirmed two federal nominees to the board of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, the agency charged with overseeing the nearly $6 billion construction of Metro’s Silver Line to Dulles Airport.

William Shaw McDermott, a partner at K&L Gates, will replace Robert Clarke Brown. Nina Mitchell Wells, who served as New Jersey secretary of state from 1998 to 2004, will take the seat held by Charles D. Snelling, who died last year.

MWAA has faced scrutiny and criticism for the way it operates. The agency also oversees operations at Reagan National and Dulles International airports. Representatives from Maryland, Virginia and the District are also on the board.

Dana Hedgpeth is a Post reporter, working the early morning, reporting on traffic, crime and other local issues.
