I talked with Bob Watkins again. He was stuck in meetings this afternoon while Sheriff William Kolender was trying to reach him. Kolender sent out a news release announcing Watkins’ appointment before the two spoke.
Now they’ve chatted, and Watkins is good to go.
So it’s officially official – pending confirmation from the board of supervisors – Bob Watkins will replace William D. Lynch on the airport authority’s executive board.
For more, check out my story that will be posted later tonight.
