Associated Press: Bill passes to rename NH air tower for employee
NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — The air traffic control tower in Nashua, N.H., could soon be named in honor of an employee who's worked there for 50 years.
The tower would be named for Patricia Clark. A measure introduced by New Hampshire Reps. Annie Kuster and Carol Shea-Porter passed the House on Tuesday. A similar measure introduced by Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Kelly Ayotte passed the Senate in March.
Clark is responsible for administrative functions at the tower, including scheduling, travel arrangements, and payroll. Kuster and Shea-Porter say she's never even taken a sick day during her tenure.
The tower would be called the "Patricia Clark Boston Air Route Traffic Control Center."
