Norma Wesley



I became employed in 1988 and assigned to LaGuardia Airport in the Operations department as a C-14; was on probation for one year and then became permanent. The best of my career was the ability to take classes, given by the Port, to help enhance the ability to be prepared for future promotions. I worked as an Information Agent at the Port Authority Bus Terminal, during the Summer, a C-18 in the Aviation Division at One World Trade Center, and full circle, back to LaGuardia Airport as a C-19 where I spent the rest of my career until I retired in 2003.

The best was being able to educate myself both inside and outside with the assistance of Ma Ponya. The funniest experience was when I had to defend fare increases; each time NYCís Tribrough Bridge and Tunnel Authority raised their tolls, I had to stand up for the Port by informing my friends and family that the Port is responsible for bridges and tunnels that go from state to state not borough to borough.

The worst was 9/11. I still have the picture of all that were lost on that day and every now and then I look at it and remind myself just how truly blessed I am. If my memory serves me correctly, I believe it was that day I was supposed to be trained on the recently upgraded payroll program; I haven't been the same since.

Happy Centennial!
