Here’s from their PR “Vote for US!” webpage:
Less desirable to whom?
Burbank also actually has more local control now the way things stand without a new terminal. We have the Measure B vote — the real Measure B. But if this thing wins in Novٖember the voters will never get another chance to weigh in on anything that comes up the road.
That’s it– there will never be another citizen vote once a “replacement terminal” gets built. And you could easily see a 28-gate terminal there in the future (and will– why do you think they want to relocate to a bigger space, and won’t pull their late 90s expansion plan from the FAA?) The terminal they have planned post-election is already almost half again as big as the current facility.
If it loses, they’ll just have to present a better plan to the voters. So don’t buy this scare tactic. Don’t buy either their other claim that the airport’s not earthquake safe, and that it was built in 1930.
It is, and it wasn’t. Actually, is there anything still left there from 1930?
Here’s some pictures of the original facility on opening day:
Looks familiar, doesn’t it? See, we need a new one!
They just lie, don’t they. They’re desperate to get the voters to approve an expensive new boondoggle that most people know we don’t need. We like the old one just fine.
Notice too how the ballot statement lobbies for a “yes” vote?
Whatever works, eh? It also repeats the “greater voice” lie. The future’s already been pegged out.
Your only voice is now, people. So vote “no.”
