Letter To The Editor: Santa Monica Airport Is More Than A Historical Landmark:

Dear Editor,

Santa Monica Airport is more than a historical landmark. It is the first responder for emergencies and life-saving transplants, a place of refuge for all West Los Angeles residents, and currently cuts down on airport noise and pollution, based on current guidelines within Measure D.

This allows Santa Monica residents to preserve these critical issues, and lets the voters decide whether to close this Airport removing our safe haven, while creating another land redevelopment.

Measure L.C. leaves this decision solely to seven members of the Santa Monica City Council. The rights of the voters are both necessary and paramount to maintain the democratic society that so many people lost their lives for.

Sincerely,

Marie Espino,

Concerned Resident of Pico Neighborhood Association
