Carl Meseck of Glendale Elected President

Chris Holden of Pasadena Named Vice President; Charles Lombardo of Burbank Continues as Secretary for Coming Year

BURBANK, Calif., July 26, 1999 – The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority today elected Commissioner Carl Meseck of Glendale to serve as president of the Airport Authority Commission for the coming fiscal year.  He succeeds Pasadena Commissioner Joyce Streator, who has been president for the past three years.

Meseck, who has served previously as secretary and vice president and who has held a seat on the Commission since its inception in 1977, said his top priority will be to reach a successful conclusion on all matters relating to the proposed replacement terminal project at Burbank Airport.

“I think we can all see the light at the end of the tunnel now, and I will do everything I can to make sure we get there,” Meseck said.

Replacing Meseck as vice president is Pasadena Commissioner Chris Holden, who has served on the Commission since 1993. Holden has previously served as secretary and is a member of the Commission’s Operations and Development Committee which oversees airport daily operational issues and the development of capital projects.

Burbank Commissioner Charles Lombardo, a member of the Authority since 1998, was reelected secretary, a post he has held for the past year.  Lombardo is also a member of the Operations and Development Committee.
