JMAA Board Chairman Dr. Rosie L.T. Pridgen also protested the "illegal takeover" as she has since it first went public.

"Thank you citizens of Mississippi and strategic partners for rallying the cry for help to try and defeat the hostile takeover of Jackson's airports," she said in an April 21 statement. "It is unfortunate that the majority of our state legislators would rather spend time, energy and resources with this illegal takeover than to address pressing issues to make things better for our state."
"Senate Bill 2162 has no merit and doesn't represent the genuine hospitality of our great state," Pridgen stated.

Pridgen said citizens should call the governor, lieutenant governor, House speaker and other representatives. The JMAA handed out pamphlets with the telephone numbers on them to the crowd. "Tell them it is not morally right, it is not business-friendly, nor does it present a positive image for our state. So we need you to get involved now," Pridgen said. "If not you, who? If not now, when?"

One of the few faces in the Senate gallery during the hours-long discussion of the airport "takeover" bill Thursday was that of Jackson Municipal Airport Authority Board Chairman Dr. Rosie L.T. Pridgen. This morning, she implored a group gathered at Koinonia Coffee House to contact their legislators, city politicians and media outlets to make sure their voices are heard.
"We don't want the JMAA to be one of those things that does not get the attention it needs," Pridgen told people gathered for the weekly Friday Forum.
She said the issue is not confined to Jackson, and that everyone in the community should reach out to those in other parts of the state to contact their own representatives in the House.
"This is not just a Jackson fight," she explained. "We need some attention."
The airport has been on the rise, financially and developmentally, Pridgen said. Over the years, she said, the airport has reinvested any surplus revenue back into improvements and infrastructure of the facility and continuing education for the board and employees. She said changing the structure of the board, as the bill outlines, would hamper that improvement, including any future development.
...
Pridgen pointed out that future development projects, including land recently certified as "shovel-ready" by Entergy, would be put on hold during the ensuing legal struggle that the bill's passage would guarantee.
...
Pridgen is not the only one to pledge legal action legal action this week. The day before the bill passed, Ward 2 Councilman Melvin Priester Jr., an attorney, said in a phone interview that he was already looking for money in the City's budget to fund the resulting litigation if the bill is successful.
