Give the public a say in evaluating Airport Director Ron Mathieu’s job performance? That was the suggestion of Gen. Wesley Clark, recently appointed to the Little Rock Municipal Airport Commission, in his first meeting with the commission’s personnel committee this morning.

Clark’s suggestion came up during discussion of the instruments the commission will use to evaluate the director. Commissioner Tom Scheuck thought Clark was changing the subject when Clark asked if the airport solicited public comment on its operations. “We’re talking about evaluating the director,” Scheuck said. “I want to see what the public says about his job performance,” Clark replied.
