He said he thinks the values of city officials are skewed. They are letting the city’s small airports deteriorate and he worries about the future of Montgomery Field, he said.

“If they don’t value the asset, which they expropriated from Bill Gibbs, they can run it into the ground making it a worthless asset. Then they’ll claim that it needs to be developed to become valuable,” Beach said.
