The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority is saddened by the death of one of its commissioners. James Klobnak represented the City of Kansas City, Mo., on the KCATA board.
“The loss of Jim Klobnak is felt throughout the organization,” said Robbie Makinen, KCATA president and CEO. “Not only will his leadership be missed on the board, but he was a long-time employee of the agency prior to attending law school. Jim was a staunch watchdog for the community, customers and employees of the KCATA.”
Klobnak joined the Board in December 2010, and served previously as Secretary of the Board.
