"As Mayor, I support the Airport Commission’s decision to accept Mr. Orr’s retirement effective December 31, 2013. I appreciate the service he’s rendered to provide the necessary infrastructure that allows the airport to operate in a business-like manner for decades to come. I also fully endorse Brent Cagle, with his sound aviation experience, being authorized by the City Manager to provide support for the Commission. Now is the time to continue our work with the Governor, General Assembly, business community and our airport partners toward a permanent solution that allows future business development opportunities to flourish in and around the airport."
