Interviews for La Crosse Airport director begin Tuesday



Six people will be interviewed this week for the top job at the La Crosse Regional Airport.

Ironically, none of those candidates will be required to fly to La Crosse for an interview, unless they become finalists.

The six interviews will be conducted by satellite or phone Tuesday and Wednesday.

Former airport director Clint Torp took a new job with the Des Moines Airport in April. His deputy director, Jason Gillett, also left La Crosse recently. 

The deputy post could be filled after a new director is hired.  

Aviation Board chair Andrea Richmond says two finalists are expected to be brought to La Crosse for interviews, perhaps with other members of the board participating in the questioning.
