Airport commissioner to step down from panel
October 26, 2010 · 11:17 AM
Al Paxhia announced last week that he’s stepping down from the three-member commission overseeing Vashon’s small municipal airport, a board he’s served on for the last 14 years.
Paxhia and his wife Deborah are moving to Arizona on Nov. 1, he said. The couple plans to split their time between Vashon and Arizona. He could continue to serve on the commission as a part-time resident, he said, “but it’s really not fair for me to be an absentee.”
Paxhia’s last meeting will be its January one. The commissioners, he added, haven’t decided how they’ll go about filling his position.
