County exec and council put on notice
To County Executive Aaron Reardon and the Snohomish County Council:
We are very saddened by your continued pandering to the false claims of the FAA that the notion of turning Paine Field will not affect our local communities, economy, schools, taxes, wildlife, quiet, or the business of Boeing.
Surely you have all read the ludicrous, false, repetitive statements in the various finding documents of the FAA, where they lie repetitively about what will happen if you, Snohomish County, cave to FAA pressures, to turn Paine Field into a commercial, industrial, traffic jam pit of noise and business.
We DO NOT WANT you to represent your personal interest to "save your job", or "take the least path of resistance," or worse, as our elected representatives, fail to do your job to fairly and accurately represent the vast majority of all the landowners and residents of Snohomish County.
We, the people of Snohomish County, who DO NOT AGREE WITH YOU and DO NOT WANT Paine Field turned into a commercial airport.
Any elementary-age school child can understand the vast changes that will become our area, including the destruction of Boeing, the largest employer here and possibly in the United States.
The loss of that huge Boeing income would result in fallout for all the myriad of related jobs and bedroom community taxes to support to our Snohomish County economy.
If you keep going in the direction you are going, you will stupidly and selfishly and small-mindedly push Boeing out without understand the epic consequences to our area.
As elected officials, you owe us an accurate representation of the majority interest of your residents, and you also owe the business and economic community that you represent your full support to further what will best promote their prosperity in the coming years.
If you personally want to take a flight for vacation, just get up a half hour earlier to take one out of SeaTac and praise God for the lovely scenery you can enjoy – and the quiet and fresh air of your community where you live, prior to going into the lowlife mixed with commercial and industrial area that frames the SeaTac airport.
Don't you care about all the expense to taxpayers here that moving all the businesses on the Mukilteo Speedway and other roads to enlarge single lane traffic, to retrograde and retrofit all our schools and buildings would cost to counteract continual jet noise?
Don't you think that the majority of us chose to live here because it was quiet? And that we are very likely to move out of here, many of us, if it becomes a loud, intra-city, metropolis?
What is really important to you people? Do you care about old-fashioned honesty, improvement of communities and taking your responsibility to fight for what is right and what is ethical serious?
I can't fathom how you think it is simply fine to support a move that will drastically undermine Boeing and remove BILLIONS of dollars of Boeing revenue from your coffers.
Please reconsider your motives and your response to the pressures of the FAA, and we hope you will all resign your positions if you don't want to do what we want, and what is right for us and for Boeing, and for all of Snohomish County.
