Spare us more lecturing by the Sentinel.  Let us recall the Sentinel steadfastly defended Rex Tippetts, and ran an editorial supporting him even after hundreds of citizens presented compelling evidence that something was amiss.  The Sentinel might have mentioned that members of the public, not just Board members served on the search committee, and interviewed the other candidates.  The Sentinel also neglects to distinguish between the old board, that they defended while it screwed up the airport, and this new board, that has worked hard to fix it .  Sanctimonious dribble.  Where were you when it mattered Sentinel?

My bet, Mr Shepard, is that you post will be taken down. Any negative comments about the Sentinel and/Lois Dunn have a way of doing that. GOB & G have it covered. Just ask them. Their response is always “trust us.”

I think it is important to note that the finalist list was posted in the following locations for over 2-weeks:
1. Grand Junction Regional Airport Website,
2. Public Posting Board at City Hall
3. Public Posting Board at the County Court House
4. Published in the Legal Notices in the Daily Sentinel, on August 7, 2014.

Exactly what was that intended to do? CYA? Yea or nay on one 1 (ONE) candidate? A candidate selected by the “board?” Why is it necessary to spin it? The “board” has their man and that is that. GOB & G in control. Why not tell it like it is?

Not Freida Cook - Am a relative - Patrick Rodgers - A common element of Organizational Development theory is to grow leaders from within the company.  What this entails is while you may do an open recruitment for a position, if there is an “equally qualified” man or woman within, they should get the job.  This process is good at all levels of the organization because it shows employees their contributions and hard work to the company is valued.  In addition,  it provides the newly promoted leader with insider knowledge on issues to be faced and the stakeholders dealing with them.  Moral of the story, it is always good to promote from within, whenever possible.

Such as all of the “crook” methods? Cover ups? Keeping skeletons hidden? And when the “organization” is flawed it is best to get someone who is not beholdin’ to the crooks.

Jerry, just wondering… everyone in Grand Junction a crook?  I think you have been watching too many reruns of Law & Order?

If t5hey are part of of the GOB & G and/or have been in every office or on every board imaginable. Why ask me a STUPID question like that. Do you NOT keep up. Look around dummy. Taxes on food (Comrade Norris), airport (everyone on that board has some responsibility), republican party ( Dunn and others), GJHS (?), Hilkey, CMU president. I think you are just blind and stupid. How in hell do you know what I watch? You seem to know much about Law and order?

Not Freida Cook - Am Patrick Rodgers - Jerry, I can clearly now there is a conspiracy at work in GJ and you are the only rightous person in town.  Must be terrible to have to survive such an environment.  As I see it, you have two choices?  You can either run for office and help clean up what you see as a mess, or just sit on the sidelines whining about it.  We both know which of those options you will choose, don’t we? On the Media, big brother is watching and keeping book on you.  Hope you haven’t been watching anything illegal on your computer or the “men in black” will be knocking on your door.

LOL. Mr Know it all. Again how in hell do you know what I do or watch? I am NOT self righteous. As I said Mr Know It All. How do you know what choices I have? You just run your damned mouth like a democrap and throw any old crap out there. You worry about the “men in black.” I do NOT. I really could care less who is keeping book. You are an idiot. Bring it.
