Aircraft tail number N390DP, registered to Davison Transport made two round-trip flights from Ruston to Baton Rouge the evening of Tuesday, August 25, 2009. The Faircloth fundraiser was held at Squire Creek Country Club, owned by James Davison. The aircraft is a Raytheon Model 390 Premier I, built in 2002.
A Davison front company owns the building in which V-Vehicle Company is supposed to use for automobile manufacturing. The Jindal administration – along with several Ouachita Parish government bodies – gifted the company nearly $90 million for construction and employee training. LPNO has reported extensively on the controversy.
Lincoln Parish News Online contacted the Governor’s Office today, and a spokesman for the Governor said travel arrangement were made through the Faircloth campaign. Faircloth campaign manager Diane Mobley confirmed that the Davison jet ferried Governor Jindal to the event.
Jindal had been scheduled to hold a Town Hall meeting at Choudrant that afternoon, but it was postponed until a later date.
