She worked on policies affecting transportation entities that operate in the 8th District, including Newark Liberty Airport, Amtrak, PATH, various freight railroads, the Port of New York and New Jersey, the Port of Newark, and several container terminals.

During her tenure, Ms. Pike staffed the Congressman through consideration of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, the first long-term surface transportation bill in nearly a decade, including the Congressman’s appointment as a Conference Committee manager. She was instrumental in the bill’s inclusion of Congressman Sires’ improved commuter planning language.

Additionally, she assisted in securing a $14.8M TIGER Grant for the Port of Newark Container Terminal.

In addition to transportation, Ms. Pike handled energy, environment, and labor policy and was responsible for managing the Congressman’s priorities regarding the Energy and Water, Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, Interior and Environment, and Commerce, Justice, and Science appropriations bills.

Prior to serving Congressman Sires, Ms. Pike was a Legislative Assistant for the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, where she served on the Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment and the Subcommittee on Highways and Transit. During this time, Ms. Pike was involved in the passage of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) Act and the Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2014 (WRRDA), the first water resources development bill passed into law since 2006.
