I hope he has his priority's correct and makes a very strong effort to encourage passenger planes to at least Atlanta's hub, opening traffic to Detroit, Flint, Chicago, etc. There are a lot of people put off having to commute to an airport North of Naples to pick up friends and relatives, deliver friends and relatives and catch a plane to travel out of the Fine State of Florida. Do you want to ignore this request and continue as an Airport Authority,( That never should have been released by former City Mayor in the amount of $1.00 )chooses revenue of cargo flights over the responsibility of moving people.

He is coming to run the Collier County Airport Authority.

It doesn't have much to do with commercial passenger flights.

He's coming to run a group of small general aviation airports. He won't have much to do with commercial passenger flights.
