Deborah Miller is a former Secretary of Transportation at the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) who served from 2003 to 2012. She was Kansas' first female and longest-serving Secretary of Transportation. She joined Cambridge Systematics as a senior associate in January 2012.[1]

Kansas Secretary of Transportation

She had been appointed by former Governor of Kansas and current U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius, as the first woman to lead KDOT and its more than 3,200 employees. Under her leadership, Kansas passed T‑WORKS, an $8 billion, 10-year transportation program that will create tens of thousands of jobs throughout Kansas by funding highway preservation and capacity improvements, continuing the focus on safety improvements, and increasing investments in aviation, rail, and public transportation. A hallmark of Miller’s tenure at KDOT was her commitment to open communications and transparency. Her focus on public engagement was key in ultimately convincing legislators and citizens of the benefits of well-planned transportation investment programs and the economic dividends they create.

Governor of Kansas, Sam Brownback has retained Miller as Secretary of Transportation in his administration.

Prior to her appointment, from 1986 to 1997, she served as KDOT's Director of the Division of Planning and Development.

Education

Miller is a 1976 magna cum laude graduate of Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology.[2]
