He has been replaced by former Airports Director and current Projects VP Paul Toth. He is a good man, hot head, big mouth, but is great at organization and keeping things going. His post at the Airports was suppose to be temporary, but he retained it for several years.

You got very little to work with in the form of TOL in the first place. Then throw in the scandal and Carty on his soap box, all equal a scape goat. You knew it was going to happen, but Carty just needed to make it look offical.

Quoting Ouboy79 (Thread starter):

Toth is the interim. The board will conduct a search to find a permanent replacement, and expects to take 3-6 months to complete.
I hope they bring in someone from outside the community, but who would want to come in, given the little Payton Place we seem to have here in TOL. Toth will probably get the job as a placeholder. I expect Mayor Finkenstein wants the job, and will take it as an excuse not to run (and lose) for another term. If he does get appointed Port President, everything will grind to a halt. Every local politician (I.E. Democrat since there is hardly any active Republican Party here) is going to get in the way and really hurt this area. We need a true development leader, not a bunch of politicans rushing for the cameras.
At least this means that the Port will probably not ask for their levy renewal this fall. At least that piece of my property taxes won't go up.
