Nashua Airport divisiveness prompts request for liaison
Adams’ husband works at the airport’s air traffic control tower, prompting some to express concern about an alleged conflict of interest.
But some aldermen on the Personnel and Administrative Affairs Committee questioned whether Adams would have to frequently recuse herself from important votes because of a perceived conflict of interest.
She said Monday that despite all of the changes at the facility, the aviation industry is starting to make positive advances after a dive in the past few years because of the economy.
“There is no shortage of other highly qualified candidates for the position,” said Peter Vollheim, who owns a hangar at the airport and said he considers Adams a friend. Because of Adams’ position as the only restaurant owner at the facility, her lease of property at the airport and her husband’s employment at the tower, her appointment could be polarizing, Vollheim said.
David Deane, president of the Board of Aldermen, said Monday that he is sponsoring a proposal to create an aldermanic liaison to the Nashua Airport Authority.
“There have been a lot of issues over there,” said Deane. “I think it is time to put a liaison over there to keep an ear to the ground and make sure there are no more problems.”
“I want to make sure that our airport stays revenue-neutral, and that it is being utilized to its fullest potential,” he said.
