AIRPORT DISTRICT — Bob Hope Airport’s tri-city governing body unanimously elected Glendale Commissioner and Police Lt. Carl Povilaitis as president of the authority on Monday to serve out the term of Glendale City Councilman Bob Yousefian who resigned from the post last month.
Yousefian stepped down from the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority on Nov. 13, a day after he resigned the presidency. Yousefian’s fellow council members handed down a vote of no confidence in him the week before and were poised to remove him from the board.
Povilaitis, who has served on the commission since 1999, accepted the presidency with a hopeful tone.
“In my years here, it has been wonderful,” Povilaitis said. “We don’t always agree on everything, but it’s certainty been with a level of respect that we approach the issues. I look forward to continue to work with you.”
