Barry Makes Appointment to Airport Authority

Another appointment was made Tuesday by Meridian Mayor Cheri Barry. At the city council meeting, Barry announced her appointment of Debra Ann Brewer to the Meridian Airport Authority.

The council approved the appointment. Brewer replaces Bunky Partridge on the board.

Brewer is a nurse at Riley Hospital and the pastor of Good Shepherd Ministries in Meridian.

"We look forward to working with her in the effort to make wonderful changes to Key Field and the airport authority," Barry said.

The airport authority oversees the operations of Meridian Regional Airport, including approving its budget, contracts, leases and construction. Brewer was not at Tuesday's meeting.

    Actually EWG- If you look at all of her other appointments it appears that Cheri did make them based on the quality of the person. It appears that for onece she is not being crucified or her appointment. I know Cheri extrmeely well and she doesnt really give ___ what others think about her appointments, she just wants the most qualified person for the position that she can TRUST to do a great job for the city. I hope that one day all of her Haters will choke on the harsh words that they have spoken of her bc the city of Meridian will eventually conquer with her help.

    I agree with Bob where are all the remarks from Loretta. I guess in her eyes this must be a good thing. I cannot beleive Cheri finally did something Loretta is not complaining about.

    Most likely because Minister Brewer is an African-American lady and also a very nice lady.

    No comments from the peanut gallery yet?! I can't believe it- where are Loretta and Anthony??? Guess in this case, they can't think of any snide remarks to make (yeah right- it's just a matter of time...).
