Well after some of the lies have been exposed, it appears Citizens for Ebey’s Reserve’s true intent is finally revealed — to close Whidbey Island Naval Air Station and plunge this community into economic chaos.
I don’t know if they have a clue about how a military installation works, but you just can’t pick up however many squadrons of EA-18G’s there are and move them.
The infrastructure alone would cost millions.
So, if the intent is not to close the base, I am going to offer another theory — they want the government to buy them out.
I urge all concerned residents to contact their representative’s in Washington, D.C. and Olympia and let them know that this minority of people are not an example of how the majority feel.
I do and I hope you will.
