Mariposa Airport Proposed Staff Reduction Not Equitable

Fellow airport enthusiasts,
Our county government will be voting on whether or not to reduce personnel funding for the airport by 75%. The discussion and vote will occur starting September 15th. This cut would leave us with an unattended airport, minimal maintenance and a ghost town atmosphere.
The total reduction in discretionary spending is 6%.  All remaining county employees received a 4% raise. The airport is being curtailed 12.5 times the level of other groups. This is financial cannibalism.

Any support you can lend would be appreciated. This could be in the form of E-mails, phone calls or letters. The financial officer is claiming that pilots would visit without the airport, so any refutation of this would help.
