It Takes a Lot of Patience to Change an Airport Name

  • Print

 Airport names get changed frequently. In fact, our own director of airports, Victor White told me he once went through the process of changing the same airport name three times.  We are getting a beautiful new terminal that, and since we only have one terminal, that terminal constitutes a "new airport" in the minds of most people.  Our city could benefit from a new, retainable, name for our airport. Trying  to convince people of that, especially when a completely erroneous budget estimate that was constructed to confuse the issue got into the hands of some reporters who failed to read anything but the bottom line figure. Now we are waiting for all the council members to make their appointments to the naming commiitte so nothing will happen until at least Dec. 3rd.
