Jackson Jambalaya: Airport CEO Resigns.

I don't know what happened here, but Mr. Newman had an outstanding professional reputation and was more than qualified for the position (which is extremely rare for anyone in a Jackson leadership position).

...which is why he had to go. With Newman out of the way, Jackson leaders can get down to the business of making The Something Something Something Honorary Memorial Longest-name-ever-on-a-sign International Airport into a facility which reflects the values and experteeces characteristic of the Great City of Jackson.

Soon, the facility will be brought into compliance with PapaChok's and BabyChok's Jackson-Kush Plan, and become "The Most Radical Airport on The Planet" (New Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba Intends To Make Jackson, Mississippi 'The Most Radical City On The Planet' - Tennessee Star) - offering a fitting welcome to those entering The Capital of Kush: A Quiet Push for

Expect a major turnaround in the condition of the airport's infrastructure. Look forward to the development of spontaneous nature preserves, water features, and topological features, in the middle of runways. Expect to see more of this: https://goo.gl/images/ftXDrn - only now, with planes in the sinkholes.

Oh, this one is on JMAA, trust me. It's unbelievable. I get it, it's Jackson, it's Mississippi, etc., but this crap has gone on long enough. At some point we have to do something. Too many lives are in danger for these people to continue to have this power.

If you are insinuating that the board pushed him out without the mayor's blessing, I find that hard to believe.

Of course the mayor is on the side of JMAA, he appointed them.

Here's a followup. Likely the one competent person in all of Jackson City Government and they run him off. Whenever I think Jackson has hit rock bottom, they start digging.

No question.

What is going on at the airport is an abomination. I mean look at the west runway, it has been down for 2 years simply because they cannot manage a project. Normally I wonder what can really be done about such things but if we do not watch out we are going to have a serious problem on our hands, i.e. the lack of a functioning air carrier airport that serves over 50% of the state.
