The Barnstable Municipal Airport Commission has welcomed its newest member: Mary Smith of Hyannis. She was appointed to a three-year term by the Barnstable Town Council, succeeding Daniel Santos who resigned earlier this year.
"I am delighted to join the commission at this important time in its history when I can assist my colleagues with mapping future services for our beautiful new facilities," Smith said.
The new commissioner was employed for 16 years as one of the first female inspectors in the U.S. Customs Service at Boston's Logan Airport. She was co-owner of a Cessna 172 aircraft based at the Hyannis airport.
Now employed at the Barnstable Housing Authority, Smith worked formerly in the Barnstable public schools and Cape Cod Community College. She was married for 30 years to the late Melden E. Smith, Jr. and is the mother of a grown daughter, Julie.
Her extensive volunteer work includes membership in the Greater Hyannis Civic Association, Hyannis' Police, Violence and Drugs in the Community Task Force and St. Francis Xavier Church in Hyannis.
The airport commissioners also welcomed Councilor June Daley as a new liaison from the Barnstable Town Council; she joins Councilor Debra Dagwan in that role.
