Airport Shenanigans

Just happened to get a tip from a local resident that the Burbank Leader web site is running a Poll about a mandatory airport curfew that someone seems to be skewing towards a “No” Vote. I too found this surprising given the overwhelming support in the community for such a initiative, not to mention efforts by the Airport Authority and local Legislators like Adam Schiff to obtain a curfew. I’ve also heard at least one Council candidate say something like “no relocated terminal without a curfew” during our current local election campaign. I say, NO Relocated Terminal period! This comes on the heels of an interesting article that appeared in The Leader a few weeks back re FAA “safety” concerns at Bob Hope. As the 7 year “truce” in the Airport Development Agreement is set to expire next year, I’m wondering if this is the beginning of an orchestrated propaganda campaign for a “safer” & perhaps “greener” terminal? I hope not! The Airport Authority itself contents it’s safe and a relocated terminal could mean increased flight landings over the Hillside. In any case, please take a moment to visit the site and Vote YES for a Mandatory Curfew.

UPDATE:  This Poll was definitely being rigged/manipulated…+80 “No” Votes in  1 hour (740-820) from 8-9pm on 2/17/11. Busted!
