PHOENIX (AP) — Gov. Doug Ducey has appointed officials from Gilbert and Cochise County to a state board that divvies up transportation money.

Ducey announced the appointments Friday of Gilbert Mayor Jenn Daniels and former Cochise County Supervisor Richard Searle to the State Transportation Board for six-year terms.

The board prioritizes transportation projects and plays an important role in determining which highway projects get funded.

Daniels will represent Maricopa County while Searles will represent Cochise, Greenlee and Santa Cruz counties in Southern Arizona.
