Snelling re-elected as airports chairman
The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, which oversees the operations of Dulles International and Reagan National airports, has re-elected Charles D. Snelling, a federal appointee and Republican Party activist, as its chairman.
Snelling, a 79-year-old inventor, venture capitalist and developer, has served as chairman of the authority's board of directors this past year and was appointed to the independent body in 2003 by then-President Bush. Snelling, of Allentown, Pa., is president and director of Snelling Co. and the Western Lehigh Valley Corp. He was re-appointed to the authority's board for a six-year term that will expire in 2012.
Leonard Manning, chairman and chief executive of Lottery Technology Enterprises, a joint venture that operates the online lottery for the District of Columbia, was elected as the board's vice chairman. Quince T. Brinkley Jr., a former lending manager for Freddie Mac in McLean, was re-appointed as the board's secretary.
The 13-member board of directors are appointed by the governors of Virginia and Maryland, the mayor of the District and the president of the United States.
