Propeller CEO Says Commercialization Could Be Beneficial
Brett Smith said expansion of Briscoe Field could be good for residents in Lawrenceville and Dacula.
In a press conference Monday, CEO of Propeller Airports Brett Smith urged the Gwinnett Board of Commissioners to delay the vote on Briscoe Field in Lawrenceville. Smith wants commissioners to wait to fill the vacancy in District 1 after Shirley Lasseter resigned last week after pleading guilty to federal bribery charges. The vote is scheduled Tuesday, June 5.
"People in Dacula and Lawrenceville have more to gain from this than anybody," said Smith.

In a press release Monday, anti-expansion group Citizens for a Better Gwinnett called Smith's press conference "an admission that they know they're going to lose."
