Mayor Says Supporting Airport Key To Bolstering Business

If you want to bring business to the city, you need to invest in the airport. 

That word coming from Quispamsis Mayor Murray Driscoll in response to the Airport Authority's request for $600,000 for advertising from the city, towns and local service districts that make up the Fundy Regional Services Commission.

Driscoll, the vice-chair of the committee, tells CHSJ News we have to be competitive with airports like those in Moncton and in Bangor, and we may need to add more destinations in order to achieve that.

He's hoping at the next commission meeting they'll get more information on how the airport plans on spending the money. After that, he says they'll be prepared to consider the allocation.
