In Memoriam: Rep. Ed Pastor, APTA Award Recipient

Former Rep. Ed Pastor (D-AZ), 75, of Phoenix, the 2014 recipient of APTA’s Local Distinguished Service Award, died Nov. 27.

During his 23 years in the House, Pastor supported federal grants to build major transportation projects in the Phoenix area, including a $587 million Full Funding Grant Agreement in 2005 for the first 20 miles of Valley Metro Rail. He was first elected to Congress in 1991—its first Hispanic member from Arizona—and at the time of his retirement was the most senior member of the state’s House delegation and a member of the House Appropriations Committee.

At the time of the award, then-Phoenix Mayor and Rep.-elect Greg Stanton (D-AZ) called Pastor “a true point of pride and one of our greatest community champions for Phoenix and the region,” adding, “His vision is centered on connectivity and building a better life for Arizonans through access to public transportation, jobs, education and arts and culture.”
