Ken was a good friend to SWTA, transportation, and specifically transit. He loved his job and serving the public.

GONE WEST: Ken Montoya, the irrepressible legislative director for Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-Ariz.), passed away earlier this week after a short battle with cancer. In a statement, Kirkpatrick said: ‘We are absolutely heartbroken. Ken was one of a kind - a wonderful person, an amazing friend, a loyal staffer. He truly loved the legislative process. And we loved having him as part of our work family every single day. It’s hard to imagine Capitol Hill without Ken Montoya - he left an accomplished legacy here and touched a lot of lives. We will miss him terribly. Our thoughts are with his family and loved ones during this difficult time.’ Montoya, well-known and liked in the transportation community, also had a stint doing government affairs for the National Air Traffic Controllers Association.
