Delaney named to state rail commission

Gov. Charlie Crist has appointed University of North Florida president and former Jacksonville mayor John Delaney to the state’s passenger rail commission.

Delaney will serve on the nine-member Florida Statewide Passenger Rail Commission — tasked with monitoring passenger rail development — until Aug. 9, 2014.

The commission was created in 2009 after the Florida Department of Transportation received $1.25 billion in federal stimulus funding to build high-speed rail service between Orlando and Tampa.
