Vote for Brian Sullivan
Fri, Jul 17, 2015 - 11:14 PM

A quick update on three topics . . .


 Councilmember Brian Sullivan continues to represent your interests in Paine Field issues and deserves your vote in the coming elections. Brian will continue to defend our quality of life, support and promote aerospace manufacturing, while opposing scheduled commercial flights.

Brian’s opponent has long promoted commercial service using every angle possible. He scoffs at concerns over unrestricted and subsidized commercial service – there is no other way to describe his views on the airport other than he completely dismisses your concerns.

Brian’s leadership is just the opposite and is evident throughout the decades-long Paine Field debate, and with the future of Paine Field in question again, Brian fully understands that a 50 year lease to an unproven company, Propeller LLC, is like opening Pandora's box.

Brian will continue work to ensure there are no subsidies, that all impacts are paid for and that the true market and all applicable laws will dictate the outcome rather than flawed political pandering and misstatements.

If you care about this issue, if you support aerospace, general aviation and tourism versus subsidizing competition with SeaTac and Bellingham, then vote for Brian Sullivan.

2. The Federal lawsuit is still alive. This will see more activity when there is more direct action at Paine Field, such as terminal construction being scheduled.

3. The County lawsuit is still alive. This is progressing, and we will send out an alert when there is something to report.

County Council Set to Vote Monday, March 2nd
Thu, Feb 26, 2015 - 10:07 PMPosted by SOC

Monday, March 2nd – That is the day the Snohomish County Council plans to vote on the Propeller Lease, but you can delay that vote! Why delay? All the facts are not in.

The lease does not fully protect you, the taxpayer, leaving us vulnerable to future costs. Also, The County has offered no public evidence of conducting due diligence verifying who Propeller is, why their business plan would work here when it has failed elsewhere and how the lease elements fully protect taxpayers over 50 years. 

Keep writing! YOU can help delay that vote and change the expected outcome.
Attend the Council Meeting March 2nd, 10:30 AM! Let the County know you hold them accountable.

Use the email templates or create your own, and focus on County Executive Lovick, Council Chair Somers and Councilman Ryan to convince them to slow down.
