Dear editor,

Your distasteful editorial cartoon (Comox Valley Record, July 1, 2014) depicting the directors of the Comox Valley Airport Commission as pigs displayed an unfortunate lack of awareness of the value of competent governance.

Not all your readers believe public service should be ridiculed and unrewarded.

The Comox Valley is well served by an excellent airport capably governed and administered by a commission and staff in whom we can all be proud.

The minimal stipend the directors recently voted themselves is small compensation for the public service they provide.
