Someone Doesn't Get It...Airport Facebook an Insult

I don't know who is to blame... the contractor or the potted plant, but the Airport's Facebook page for Memorial Day was offensive to many who reached out to me to share the below.

 

Memorial Day...I don't think Happy and Memorial Day belong together.

Maren....it's called learning how to be an expert at Airport Marketing on the Cities Dime. Eventually (not holding my breath here), the marketing people will get so good you'll forget we had to spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in "No Bid" contracts to train them to do the job.

I don't see the cartoon on airports Facebook page. Was it removed?

The Pensacola Airport Marketing department didn't welcome the LGBT community this past weekend. No rainbows flying at the Airport.

Where was the LGBT welcome on Facebook or in airport, which is a big $ maker?

Does the Mayor and his administration support the LGBT community??

Airport only promotes the Upside not the Backside of Florida

A huge slap in the face to our fallen military heroes and their families!!! If this is not proof that our city management and leadership is a bunch of morons then I don’t know what else is! Memorial Day is a day of remembrance and a day for us to pause and pay respect to our military men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. IT IS NOT a day to “celebrate” and be “happy” about. Tamara Fountain was the first one to like the post on Facebook. Are you reading this TAMARA FOUNTAIN? This is proof positive that you are an IDIOT. Are you reading this CHIP HENDERSON? Are you reading this DAN FLYNN? Are you reading this LAURA BOGAN? Are you reading this REBECCA MCLELLAN? You are all pathetic. I am offended and appalled by your lack of respect and your lack of diligence and responsibility about one of our most sacred national holidays. Instead, you evidently just giggle and flippantly post whatever “makes you feel good” (DO YOU UNDERSTAND ANY OF THIS LAURA BOGAN? – YOU DELETED). Where are your checks and balances before putting garbage like this on a city funded website? Derekk Cosson should have caught this…he seems like the only one of this ragtag group that knows anything about PR, punctuation and protocol. The rest of you should be ashamed. Some of us local veteran’s groups and military groups should get together and protest this gross sloppiness at city hall and petition to get some of these DELETED thrown out of their management jobs. Dan Flynn and airport bunch…you are all a freaking joke. Carry on dumb DELETED.

You seem to think Dan Flynn is in charge at the Airport. Tamara really runs it. Brogan maintains that page and Real Airport people have little input on it.

The LGBT community did not have a Federally recognized day for those lost on the wrong side of the beach.

Thank you for choosing Pensacola as your three-day holiday destination and we love the cultural blend the LGBT community provides for the area, but Memorial Day is federally recognized solely for those who have died so the result of future Memorial Day Weekends are safe for the LGBT community to exist freely.

I'm not one to harp on about the military, but the fact remains that if our laws are not protected, there would be no open protesting for gay rights or women's rights or any other minority rights.

AS of 9:30 pm tonite the "Happy Memorial Day" post is still on the airport FB page. Sick. Sick. Sick. I think they (Bogan, Flynn, Fountain, others) must think this is all funny. They could have delted the post and moved on. Or better yet appologized and accepted responsibility for it and saved face. But instead they are all just laughing at you, me and our military and saying they don't care what we think. They have their cushy jobs and contracts and butt buddy friendships with each other and think we are all just a bunch of dirty people.

Dan Flynn doesn't have anything to do with this. Remember, just a short time ago, Fountain threatened to have him fired. He's doing what he's told to do.

Gotta love how the latest facebook post about the cheese sandwich is liked by Rebecca Mclellan herself and her mother Yvette who works in HR at the city and helped Rebecca get her job! These ladies have no shame!

Correction -- Yvette McLellan doesn't work in HR. She works for Dick Barker in finance. But other than that, you are spot on. No way would Rebecca have been hired for this job had she not had contacts in City Hall. It's really sad when an organization makes hiring decisions based on who you know rather than what you know. That does a disservice to the City and the employee (Rebecca). It's a recipe for disaster and just imagine how Belinda Zephir feels. She's highly qualified and could run circles around Rebecca. Yet duties were supposedly taken from Belinda's job to find a way to hire Rebecca.

It's cute that you guys think Tamara Fountain runs the airport.
