An arrogant ideologue, she was mostly interested in destroying the FSS function thru privitization, busting the controllers union in the mouth(NATCA),and hiring way too many unqualified/under qualified applicants as controllers, while driving experienced vets in to retirement, with her punitive work rules. I saw this first hand at one of the country’s busiest ATC faciltiies (I’m now retired). She may claim to have JF in her veins, but she didn’t have a clue about pratical solutions to real time problems. Her agenda quickly became clear: contract out/privatize her way, to her current job at AIA.
