West Virginian in Line for Obama Post

Spencer native Debbie Hersman awaits a U.S. Senate vote after President Obama nominated her to head the National Transportation Safety Board, "the agency that investigates civil transportation accidents," the Charleston Daily Mail reports.

"Since President Bush nominated her to the board in 2004, Hersman has been the member on scene at 16 major transportation accidents," the article said, adding that "the wife and mother of three is certified to drive motorcycles and commercial vehicles, including school buses and large trucks."
