The Santa Maria Public Airport District Board of Directors selected its representatives to local and regional committees last week with a few changes from 2011.
Don Lahr, who was chosen by the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors to replace the late Ted Eckert on the airport board, will serve on the Marketing and Promotions Committee with board President Carl Engel. Lahr and Engel will also serve as liaison to both Santa Maria and Santa Barbara County.
Engel, who replaces Hugh Rafferty as board president this year, will serve with Rafferty on the Administration and Financial Committee.
Chuck Damiano and Chuck Adams, the only pilots on the board, will continue as board representatives to the Aviation Support and Planning Committee.
Damiano will also join Rafferty as liaisons to both state and federal agencies, including Vandenberg Air Force Base.
