We’ve just got to have faith that everyone in the future will do the right thing!
Board Vice President Terry Tornek said both the Authority and the city have evolved to a point where they can work with one another on the replacement terminal project, noting that the relationship between the two agencies was more contentious in the past.
Good for whom?
Isn’t it funny how our city council members — except for Gordon on occasion – never speak up in these news articles about this unnecessary “replacement” terminal? It’s always the Authority doing the talking.
It was such a mock attempt to look independent, because now the council-majority insists on writing the actual ballot argument in favor! It makes you wonder if this strategy was cooked up somewhere by agreement. Like if they write the article in favor now instead of the Authority or some other flack it makes it look all the more credible.
Gordon writing in opposition of course makes it look like another whine job from the council crazies. But the council crazies aren’t writing any of the super-positive Yelp about the existing facility, and so what’s the explanation on that one?
Any explanation as well as to why the Authority won’t drop their 27-gate plan with the FAA, or why our four council backers won’t ask them to do so?
It’s an uncomfortable topic, yes. So let’s just have faith instead that any future city council in Burbank won’t take advantage of the growth opportunities that a “yes” vote will give to the Authority in November.
As Gordon put it the other night, there are no more Measure B’s after November if this silly scheme passes. That’s it for any kind of community review. The Authority and the airport boosters may not always be so collegial.
