Airport Director Arrested for DWI

Airport Director Susan Walsh faces a driving while intoxicated charge after an accident in East Rochester Thursday night.

Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks placed Walsh on administrative leave pending an investigation. She is also suspended indefinitely from using her county-owned vehicle. Walsh’s duties at the airport will be assumed by Deputy Airport Director Angela Veltre.

Walsh took over at the airport early in 2011, replacing former director Dave Damelio who resigned amid a scandal involving allegations he inappropriately used taxpayer money at strip clubs and to buy expensive cigars.
