Ron Mathieu, executive director of Little Rock National Airport, got a makeup today for a pay raise he missed last year following the big controversy over $40,000 he gave to Little Rock Christian, the private school his son attended, to install a new surface for the football field.

David Goins of Fox 16 reports the Commission gave Mathieu a $10,000 bonus, plus a $10,000 pay raise from $180,000 to $190,000.

You got the equivalent of an 11 percent pay bump this year, didn't you?

The commission really likes Mathieu, architect of plan by which the airport has been able to increase revenues from airlines even in the face of a continuing decline in passenger loads (another drop, of 1.9 percent, in 2011). PS: That figure refers to enplanements.
