Airport Hijinks

Former Mayor Slay has been hired by one of the bidders interested in receiving the contract if Lambert Airport is privatized. That appears of course to be a payoff in addition to Jeff Rainford, the Mayor’s former aide who was previously hired as a consultant to the project. I still don’t understand with all the problems the city has the privatization effort appears to be such a high priority. Written by Paul Dribin

Privatizing Lambert Airport

The Post had a long article this weekend on the pros and cons of privatizing Lambert Airport. This idea was proposed by Rex Sinquefield, a very wealthy conservative in the area who had the ear of former Mayor Francis Slay. I honestly don’t know if the idea is good or not, but I am suspicious of most things put forward by Rex. It may be a case of cognitive dissonance. It is hard for me to understand how the city would save money by this privatization. Written by Paul Dribin
