No specific reason was given regarding the firing of Williams, and Augusta Aviation Commission chair Cedric Johnson would not elaborate on the details of their decision. “It’s a personnel issue and our statement is that we just determined that we want to go in a different direction.”

Johnson added that Aviation Commissioners are looking at the previous executive director, Gary LeTellier, who retired back in February, to serve as the interim director for now.
