San Bernardino County’s transportation agency made a great choice in hiring Ray Wolfe as its executive director.

Wolfe’s hiring brings a well experienced person to the helm of San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG).

SANBAG plans and oversees highway construction within the county.

Wolfe, an executive director for the California Department of Transportation, replaces Deborah Barmack, who retired recently.

It’s doubtful Wolfe has a spouse who is a partner with SANBAG law firm Best, Best and Krieger as did Barmack.

Barmack’s husband, Peter Barmack, is a partner with BB&K.

A firm raking in millions in fees from an ongoing legal battle with the County.
