Kris McFadden to head San Diego Transportation & Storm Water Department

The administration of newly elected San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer continues taking shape as he announced on Tuesday that Kris McFadden would direct the city's Transportation & Storm Water Department.

McFadden will enter the role with some experience. He had up to his appointment served as deputy director of the city’s Storm Water Division — a division within Transportation & Storm Water — since April 2008, and has in the past been an environmental resources supervisor for the city of Fort Lauderdale’s Public Works Department.

“The selection of Kris McFadden to lead the Transportation & Storm Water Department is a key step in my mission to repair the city’s massive infrastructure backlog,” Faulconer said in a statement. “He has a reputation for getting things done and that’s exactly why I chose him for such an important role.”

A need for greater focus on keeping up with aging infrastructure around the city was cited often during the recent mayoral election campaign between Faulconer and Councilman David Alvarez. The Transportation & Storm Water Department is responsible for the operation and maintenance of streets, sidewalks and storm drains.

McFadden holds a bachelor's degree in biology from Allegheny College and two master's degrees — one in biology from Florida Atlantic University and another in marine affairs and policy from the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School for Marine and Atmospheric Sciences.
