South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley announced earlier this week that Christy Hall is the new secretary of the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT).
“Many of you know Christy Hall -- she has been at the Department of Transportation for over 20 years and has been a staple there,” said Haley. “I am proud to say that Secretary Hall will not only be someone who we will look to see what she’s going to do going forward, but I would ask that you go and look to see what she’s done in the past, because if that’s any indication of the kind of leader she’s going to be, we are in for a great ride.”
Hall was named acting secretary of transportation in July 2015 and has served at SCDOT for more than 20 years. She has served in various positions within the agency, including deputy secretary for engineering and deputy secretary of finance and procurement.
“I appreciate the opportunity to serve as the secretary for the SCDOT and thank Gov. Haley for her leadership for the state of South Carolina,” Hall said. “I am honored to lead the men and women of the SCDOT whose dedication and commitment to service to this great state is inspiring to me. I look forward to continuing to advance and improve upon our shared goals of efficiently and effectively delivering our services for the benefit of our citizens.”
Hall, 44, resides in Saluda County.
