BURBANK — The embattled board that runs Burbank Airport on Monday elected new officers to lead it through tough times that include lawsuits over a proposed larger passenger terminal.
The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority elected Joyce A. Streator, vice president for the past year, as its new president.
Streator, a Pasadena city councilwoman, is beginning her third year on the authority and replaces outgoing President Carl Raggio Jr. of Glendale. Raggio, an authority commissioner since 1988, will remain on the board.
Carl Meseck of Glendale, a commissioner since the authority took control of the airport in the late 1970s, will serve as vice president.
Commissioner Margie Gee of Burbank was reelected the authority's secretary in the annual election.
Each of the three cities that form the authority names three commissioners to the panel, which runs the 5-million-passengers-a-year facility.
Burbank officials and residents have repeatedly complained about noise, traffic and other issues surrounding the plan for a new terminal. Opposing sides have filed lawsuits over the matter.
