Charlotte City Manager Ron Carlee has issued the following statement:
Jerry Orr wrote me today that his “employment as Executive Director of the Airport Authority commenced and [his] employment by the City as Aviation Director terminated” with passage of the state legislation.
With his self-proclaimed termination, I notified Mr. Orr that I was naming Brent Cagle as Interim Aviation Director. Mr. Cagle is the Chief Financial Officer of the Airport. He immediately assumes full responsibility for the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport.
Mr. Cagle is committed to maintaining a seamless operation at the airport. The attached memo is being distributed to Airport employees.
