“At the policy level, I think transportation, especially building out transit, is a key issue, and that renewable energy will only become more important in the future. At the personal level, I believe it’s important to open up paths of opportunity – as Metro Transit is doing with its apprenticeship program – so more people can share in the region’s prosperity.”
Zeran has a bachelor of science degree from Upper Iowa University in Fayette, Iowa. He enjoys doing volunteer work and supporting young people interested in pursuing careers in his profession.
