If you talk about something like air traffic control, that’s especially egregious because we have the safest system there is; we’re going to now undermine that.”

Rudy Malfabon, Director, Nevada DOT

Rudy Malfabon has worked for the Nevada Department of Transportation for more than 25 years. As director, he is responsible for the daily operations of the department that has an annual operating budget of over $800 million and close to 1,750 employees.
