Indianapolis Airport Authority To People: F____ You!

The Indianapolis Airport Authority unanimously approved the appointment of John D. Clark, III as its new CEO despite ample evidence of his tenure in Jacksonville, Florida to demonstrate that he is an arrogant, self-aggrandizing person who has no time for answering to the public or treating those who work under him with any respect. Thanks, Mayor Ballard, for continuing to trash every principle upon which you were elected to serve the people of Indianapolis.

Unbelievable. Did they anyone even ask questions about what was reported in the article?

People like that are often extremely charming and cogent -- to people they HAVE to kiss up to, or to people who can do them favors.

For everybody else, especially people who "cross" them -- WHAM!

No known "cure" except self-realization, and yet the condition almost guarantees that all "bad" things are somebody else's fault.

Politics around here are littered with such persons (on both sides of the fence).

Someone asked who the board members are. I haven't been to the new airport but at the old airport they all had their pictures prominently displayed on the wall as you headed down the escalator to claim your baggage. As far as I can tell, the other current board members are Lacy Johnson, Alfred Bennett, Alex Michael Azar II, Kelly Flynn, Andrew Miller, Michael Stayton and Jean Wojtowicz. At their last board meeting, they approved a $84,857.19payment to Ice Miller. You see, Lacy Johnson didn't see a conflict of interest in him being the Board's president in the past and having his own law firm do work for the airport authority. You can bet that Lacy Johnson was behind Clark's hiring. This process began quite some time ago. Clark and Johnson had no doubt crossed paths.

$84,000??? What legal work are they doing for $84,000???

It doesn't take much lawyering by Ice Miller to generate an $84,000 bill. It's par for the course.
