He was a whistle blower. I heard that the FAA has questioned the decision making by Oneida County in the use of the MAP money.

I ran into a woman who works at the airport and she concurred that Gray was shafted EAst Utica STyle..

What is East Utica Style? Just say the greaseballs fired him because he bkew them in for FAA violations and spending money the should not have spent. Oneida County and EDGE have some problems and lets see who is gonna cover this one up..

Gray had to pay with his job...

Yes, Gray had to resort to being a whistle-blower to the FAA due to the County's mismanagement of the airport. However, the final straw was his refusal to issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the leasing of a hangar with the predetermined outcome that it would be leased to Midair regardless of any other respondents. He refused to be a party to this sweet-heart deal.

So why is Gray not suing the county in a wrongful termination suit ?
