Fort Worth's 'T' appoints Pegues to oversee government relations

The Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The T) recently promoted Monique Pegues from grant administrator to director of governmental relations.

She joined The T in 1999 as an employer trip reduction representative and later was promoted to marketing community outreach liaison.

In her new position, Pegues will serve as a liaison between congressional and legislative representatives, and state, regional and federal agencies. She also will oversee regulatory reporting and grant management, and evaluate the public transit-related federal, state and local policy issues and initiatives.

The T currently is in the environmental phase for the Southwest-to-Northeast Rail Corridor, a 40-mile commuter-rail line that will run across Tarrant County through downtown Fort Worth and Grapevine, to DFW Airport's entrance.
