Show support of OLF at Wednesday meeting | Letter

Editor,

Next week Island County Commissioner Helen Price Johnson has called for a community confrontation to discuss the national need for Outlying Field in Coupeville and the equally important moral need to mitigate the OLF’s impacts.

Watching the Island County Commissioners’ video recordings, I know our congressional delegation will have staffers attending.

There are individuals like Ken Pickard, who angrily leads an anti-OLF caucus of diverse individuals. He has said the Navy is “the biggest bully in the world,” “close the base” and “the NAS base keeps the island dysfunctional.”

These statements are archived on a Scribd website for those in denial.

Hopefully those whom support our troops will attend Price Johnson’s community confrontation on this national defense issue.

We should testify the patriotic majority supports our troops, supports OLF Coupeville unless a cost-effective alternative truly exists and supports cost-effective mitigation of the OLF’s impacts, whether that be sound-proofing or eminent domain.

The event is 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 19 at the Coupeville Rec Hall.

Please bring your video cameras in the spirit of Andrew Breitbart.
