Airport building receives new name

As a nod of respect to a man who has done so much for our community, the Tommy Shearrer Terminal Building is now the new name at the Pleasanton Municipal Airport. The Pleasanton City Council voted unanimously to accept the recommendation from the new Airport Board chairman, Jerry Drew, a position Shearrer had held for years.

In hopes of moving forward, something the board had difficulty doing since Shearrer’s death in October, City Manager Bruce Pearson commented that the board took several months to have a meeting. “The depths of the feelings for Mr. Shearrer by the airport board, and I’m sure many citizens in the community are shared,” said Pearson.
