Sure let the good ole boys that misused tax payers money take control again. Smart move. Are parish council members getting a kick back to put the crooks back in charge of the airport? Some of the same members removed those people are now trying to put them back in. Sounds funny. Get rid of all the council members and start fresh.

Absolutely agree. These elected morons are in charge of the largest public business in the parish. If this was private, it would have been bankrupted, investigated and everyone of these council members would have been fired ! Poor Bill Fontenot inherits not only the mess but many of the same idiotic, mean spirited, lying council members who were there in the past administration. And all these problems, esp. Pam Gautreaux and others were present then to have done their due diligence. Ardoin mad because he played it wrong and feels he should be President not Bill Fontenot goes along with Gautreaux, Tim LeJeune and others .... To obsess on past small items rather than deal with today's big budget. Once again, say " RECALL, RECALL, RECALL". These people may have been elected, but they are "NOT QUALIFIED" to be in charge of the people's money .......

Those people are wasting parish time. Airport was broke, parish government fixed it, why go back for broke. Why? Can the council people explain to the people why. More power, of course the airport authority wants back in they had a free ride,
