Cancer gets Kathy McCartney #2 lawyer at NYS Thruway at 52 OBITUARY
By Peter Samuel
Katherine 'Kathy' McCartney, deputy counsel, the number two legal officer at the New York State Thruway, and chair of the E-ZPass IAG legal committee has died of cancer at just 52. We did not know her, but those who did say she was a key person in tackling legal issues within the E-ZPass Group in recent years.
Mike Zimmerman who had a 30 year career at the Thruway, and several years as an executive VP at Mark IV says McCartney was both a great lawyer and a great person. On the latter he says of her: "Always a smile. Always an inquiry about children and family. Always time for friends."
He says Kathy McCartney was "was one of many people within the IAG family who worked hard behind the scenes to make E-ZPass what it is today."
