Letter to the editor: Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport should be a priority for the city

As a very frequent traveler from Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, I want to add to the observations of a letter to the editor from Jim Rundo in the March 5-11 edition ("Cleveland Hopkins is in desperate need of an overhaul").

I think Robert Kennedy is a huge upgrade from the previous director at Hopkins, but Chicago O'Hare just announced a multibillion-dollar expansion and upgrade while we spend very little.

There is no overhang for passengers arriving and departing. We have reduced parking capacity by replacing long-term parking with surface lots. When you can find an undercover space, the space is designed for Mini Coopers only.

Airports are growth engines for cities, but the Cleveland mayor and city council give it no priority. Why can other cities raise or be granted huge sums for improvements when we get an odd lot?
