In 1956, with the birth of the MassachusettsPortAuthority, the airport became connected to a seaport, a bridge, and a small secondary airfield.
In the last decade, the authority has become something much bigger and more unwieldy: an airport, two secondary airports, a seaport, a bridge, a conference center, a tourism board, an international consulting firm, and a real estate office.
Intended by its founders to be insulated from politics, the authority's board is dominated by political loyalists to the governor.
