Ok here is the deal. Lets compare former Airport Chairman Michael DeBourbon and current Chairman Bill Hickman based on their accomplishments and questionable actions.

1. Both will sue you. But only one has because you said something he feels hurt his feelings.

One managed to build TWENTY ONE hangars and spent only 55 thousand dollars of the airport's money. That chairman had been instrumental in obtaining money from managing the sale of coal and collecting royalties. Very well done.

The present chairman managed to build only NINE hangars and spent just under or just over ONE MILLION dollars. That chairman had never done anything to help the airport in obtaining that money whatsoever. It was there for the taking I guess, so why not spend it? Easy come, easy go?

21 hangars for around $55,000

9 hangars for around $1,000,000.00

I see a very obvious difference there.

One works for free at the airport.

And according to the ANE the other hires his work done with airport money.

This post is entirely my opinion and should be considered just that. Opinion.

One added money to the airport.

One deducts money with the help of his four puppets in my opinion.

Former Chairman comes to the airport today and assists in snow plowing so the aircraft can land and depart.

Current chairman is who knows where..

Former Chairman didn't have any connection with the Vice President of Keene Mining Consultants. The company that the News Express reported as doing questionable work at the aiport and recieving large sums of money for tasks such as doing the board meeting agendas and driving to Staples to pick up a computer cord.

Current chairman does.

One has controllers on the city.

The other wasn't controlled by the city or his law partner.

One chairman bitterly sues those who don't like him. More than once.

The other chairman doesn't believe one can use our court system to force the public to like him.

The current one Chaired over the spending of millions of airport funds including but not limited to private hangars and the support of Appalachian Air as well consultants and lawyers.

The former chaired over the board that generated those millions. The former orchestrated over the deal that brought all those millions into the airport. Not tax dollars.
