Bruce A. Gates joins the MWAA board

There was a new face at the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority’s Wednesday board meeting. Turns out that face is Virginia’s newest representative to the board that oversees Reagan National and Dulles International airports, the Dulles Toll Road and the Silver Line rail project. Bruce A. Gates of Alexandria is replacing Todd Stottlemyer, a Virginia executive.

Gates declined to be interviewed, so The Post wasn’t able to get his impressions of his first full board meeting, which included updates about the Silver Line rail project, taxi cab service at Dulles Airport and the controversial Bi-County Parkway, a proposed new road on the western border of Dulles Airport that would link Prince William and Loudoun counties.

A biography provided by MWAA says he is a senior vice president of external affairs for Altria Client Services. (Altria is the parent company of Philip Morris, which is based in Henrico County, Virginia).

Gates is one of five Virginia representatives on the 17-member board. He was appointed by Gov. Robert F. McDonnell and his term will expire in November 2014.
