Christina Reale on The Campbell Conversations

By Grant Davis Reeher


Oswego, NY – After serving as Public Information Officer and Interim Syracuse Aviation Commissioner, Christina Reale was recently appointed permanently to the Commissioner position, which includes overall management of the Syracuse airport. In this conversation, she provides information about the plans for renovating the airport, and changing its governance structure from being city controlled to operating under an independent regional authority. She also discusses the airport's fiscal health, the pricing at the airport for both concessions and flights, the growing role of women in aviation management, and the large-scale changes in passengers' airport experiences, post 9-11.

Grant Reeher is Director of the Campbell Public Affairs Institute and a professor of political science at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs. He is also creator, host and program director of “The Campbell Conversations” on WRVO, a weekly regional public affairs program featuring extended in-depth interviews with regional and national writers, politicians, activists, public officials, and business professionals.
