Ray LaHood, the former U.S. Secretary of Transportation, will join a Washington, D.C-based advocacy group, where he will push for Congress to fund improvements in the nation's roads, bridges, airports, rails and ports. Separately, David Strickland, who lead the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration until last month, will join a Washington law firm. Building America's Future named LaHood as co-chairman, alongside billionaire Michael Bloomberg, who just ended three terms as mayor of New York City, and former Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell. LaHood, 68, was President Barack Obama's transportation chief from 2009 until July 2013, and is a former Republican congressman from Illinois.
