(July 25, 2006 [posting of this article was delayed during an SCE power disruption]) -- The Board of Directors of Long Beach Airport Ass'n, an entity whose members have business interests related to LB Airport, wants the new terminal named the "Beverly O'Neill Terminal."
The group's president, Candy Robinson, and secretary Kevin McAchren, used the public comment period for non-agendized items during the July 20 Airport Advisory Commission meeting to make their position public.
Ms. Robinson provided us with the emailed statement below:
The board of directors of the Long Beach Airport Association voted unanimously at the July board meeting to recommend that the newly approved, expanded terminal facilities
at the Long Beach airport be named the "Beverly O'Neill Terminal."

This leadership was exemplified in her last days in office, when she shepherded the terminal area improvement
project through an often-contentious council to their ultimate approval.
She was, and continues to be, an ever-enthusiastic cheerleader for Long Beach, including promoting her
"three Ts", trade, technology, and tourism. A modern airport terminal facility will certainly represent all of
those three Ts...
