The city council has unanimously approved Bryant Francis to be Shreveport's next Airports Director. He's currently the Deputy Director in Boise, Idaho. In a telephone interview with the council prior to his confirmation, Francis said one of his top priorities will be to ensure the financial strength of the airports. The confirmation of Francis as Airports Director means that Interim Director Bill Cooksey will now become Deputy Director and Mark Crawford will now become the full-time Director of Marketing and Communications.
