Dear Friends and Pilots,

Most of you have by now heard that today’s CC Times had a story concerning the leases at the East Ramp Hangars. Ken Cole and I were able to attend the County Board of Supervisors meeting yesterday and speak publically about the County mismanagement of the airport, loss of hangar revenue, the bad faith in negotiating a new lease with hangar tenants, and “oh by the way”, we do not want the airport closed. An airport that generates over 43 million dollars per year to the county. Now it’s on the record, and they have to deal with it. Lets not make it easy.
