In Memoriam: COG Honors the Life of Karin Foster

With great sadness, the Council of Governments and staff honor the life of Karin Foster, who passed away on September 30.

Ms. Foster handled freight-related issues and served as the primary liaison to regional freight stakeholders during her 6-year tenure as a member of the COG staff. As part of her responsibilities, she supported the Transportation Planning Board Freight Subcommittee, and was instrumental in convening the first ever regional Freight Forum in 2011 and in fostering the development of the subsequent “Highlighted Freights Projects List.” Ms. Foster was a diligent, enthusiastic, and steadfast worker, a highly respected colleague, and a reliable friend. She touched the lives of many people around the region, and she is – and will be – deeply missed.
