A Fond Farewell to Amanda Kadilak

TLPA has always had a small in-house staff but we accomplish a lot because we have great outside support from our meeting planners, our attorneys, our PR team and our legislative counsel. Paul Miller and Ken Butler are our legislative team. Ken has been associated with TLPA since 1987 when he left the Reagan Administration, where he served as Associate Administrator for Budget and Policy for the Federal Transit Administration (then the Urban Mass Transportation Administration), and started a government relations, transportation consulting firm.

In 2000, Ken hired Amanda Brownwell to track developments in Congress by attending Congressional hearings and monitoring legislation. Now after 17 years with Miller/Wenhold Capitol Strategies, getting married and having two children (Beau and Hunter) Amanda Kadilak is leaving Miller/Wenhold to spend more time with her family. (We do think she missed an opportunity by not naming her boys Ford and Lincoln.)

TLPA cannot thank Amanda enough for all she has done over her 17 years in working with us. Amanda was instrumental in arranging many very successful and productive high-level meetings for every TLPA president since 2000 and for assisting with three TLPA legislative fly-ins. Amanda is a good writer, known for preparing concise issue briefs, legislative reports, and Miller/Wenhold’s weekly newsletters.

We at TLPA wish Amanda well on the next chapter of her life and thank her for the many years of service to the staff and members at TLPA.
