Brothers & Sisters:
Due to the violence currently taking place in MKE involving the officer shooting, it was decided mutually to move the crews from the (Long) hotel downtown to the (Short) location that is more secure at the airport – The Best Western Plus until this situation blows over. The rioting, etc. was within 4 miles from the downtown hotel location which prompted the move.
The re-location plan is as follows: 8/16, 17 and 18, 3 rooms each night, 6 rooms on the 19th and 3 rooms on the 21st. ExpressJet plans to move them back over on Monday, 8/22, dependent on the situation there. If any updates come in the meantime, they will be moved out immediately.
