Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments hires transportation director

More than a year after the Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments fired its transportation director, the organization has filled the vacancy.

John Liosatos will join the PPACG staff on Monday, according to a news release from the organization.

Liosatos previously worked for the Pima Association of Governments in Tucson, Ariz., as acting deputy director and transportation planning director.

"He is an outstanding resource given his knowledge of transportation funding and legislative issues," said PPACG Executive Director Andy Gunning, who was hired in December and previously worked for the Arizona-based government association.

The PPACG cut ties with its past transportation director, Craig Casper, in February 2017. Casper, along with the organization's former executive director and another staff member, was put on paid administrative leave in late 2016 during an investigation into complaints from former employees.

The PPACG is made up of officials from 16 area governments, including Colorado Springs, Woodland Park, Monument, Fountain and El Paso, Park and Teller counties. The organization allows member governments to share concerns and ideas to improve communities belonging to the council and maintains long-term regional transportation plans.
