Continuing the Fight for a Viable New Airport

In June, at the meeting of the San Diego Regional Airport Authority, I once again made an attempt to keep Imperial County as a site for San Diego's new airport .

The San Diego Regional Airport Authority has been tasked with planning for a larger airport facility. They have narrowed their choices to 5 sites. However, 3 of these sites are active military bases not ideally suited for a commercial airport. The California Congressional Delegation has opposed consideration of military installations as possible replacements for Lindbergh Field.

When it comes to selecting the site for the new airport, our community deserves an option that will work. Imperial Valley is the most viable site for our new airport. It offers an ideal solution to our current, and future airport problems.

The people of the Valley would welcome an airport, construction wouldn't cost anyone their homes, and with a high-speed rail connection, the airport would be accessible from San Diego in less than 30 minutes!
