AIRLINE PRESIDENT TURNS TO THE CHURCH TO HELP CONTINENTAL!
The Insite has learned Continental Airlines President Jeff Smisek found his way to several African American churches last Sunday to get out the vote on Proposition G. The proposition, which has the backing of Mayor Bill White, would amend the charter of the city of Houston to exclude airport revenues and other self-sustaining enterprise funds, from the city’s current limits on revenue collection. Smisek was reportedly accompanied by high ranking officials from the Mayors office on a tour of churches that began at 7 Sunday morning. I’m told the churches were: Wheeler Avenue, Good Hope Baptist and St. Anges Baptist. Tuesday will tell if Kellner’s efforts worked!
