McCarragher to Join APTA as Government Affairs VP

APTA President and CEO Paul P. Skoutelas has named Ward W. McCarragher as the association’s next vice president-­government affairs, succeeding Rob Healy who is retiring. McCarragher’s first day at APTA will be April 2, but he will be in attendance at APTA’s Legislative Conference in ­Washington, DC.

McCarragher has worked as majority/minority chief counsel for the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee for the past 20 years, currently serving Ranking Member Peter DeFazio (D-OR). Prior to that, he was ­minority counsel for the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Surface Transportation and the House T&I Subcommittee on Economic Development and Public Buildings.

In these roles, he was directly involved in negotiating, drafting and supporting each of the public transit titles of the surface transportation legislation over the past 25 years, starting with TEA-21 and up to and including the FAST Act.

Healy will remain at APTA through May to ensure a smooth transition.
