Southern Regional Vice President Victor Santore (at left in photo) and Opa-locka Federal Contract Tower (OPF) Facility Representative Rick Price (at right in photo) represented NATCA on Wednesday at the official ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new tower. It was a welcome occasion for NATCA and the five members who work at the facility.
