Harris-Stowe official appointed to Metro board

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has appointed Constance Gully to the Metro transit agency Board of Commissioners.

Gully, of Normandy, replaces Commissioner Richard LaBore, whose term has expired. LaBore, who is a former Crestwood alderman, was appointed to the Metro board in 2004 by Gov. Bob Holden.

“I am very pleased that Gov. Nixon selected Constance Gully for this very important position on Metro’s Board of Commissioners. She will bring a unique perspective and a strong voice to the management of this critical agency,” St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley stated in a news release. “I would also like to personally thank Dr. Richard LaBore for nearly seven years of service to the commission during a very tumultuous time in its history.”

Since 2001, Gully has served as the vice president for business and financial affairs at Harris-Stowe State University. She joined Harris-Stowe State University as comptroller in 1998. Her current responsibilities include developing and administering operating and capital budgets at the university as well as monitoring maintenance practices, policies and procedures for all departments. She oversees physical plant operations, accounting, public safety, purchasing and procurement, mailroom services, facilities rental, transportation and switchboard operations.

Gully led the Campus Expansion Committee which oversaw the planning and construction of Gillespie Residence Hall and the Early Childhood and Parent Education Center.

Gully serves on the St. Louis Zoo Friends Association Board of Directors and is a member of the Board of Directors for Charitable Women’s Club Inc. She also is the new chair of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. State Celebration Commission. Metro President and CEO John Nations stated, “We are very pleased to welcome Mrs. Gully to the Metro Board of Commissioners, and look forward to the agency and the region benefiting from her experience and expertise.”

Gully’s term will expire on Nov. 11, 2013.
