Disagrees with County Board decision not to add name to airport

To the editor:

Last night's vote (Tuesday, Feb.16) against adding Norm Clark's name to the airport as a fitting Memorial was a disgrace. The public was by far in favor of this. Close to a thousand signatures were easily collected as well as many, people volunteering their valuable time working on it and showing up for several County Board meetings.

[to top of second column in this letter]

 It was clear to me from the onset that the 3 men against this would prevail against the hundreds and hundreds that were overwhelmingly in favor of this fitting Memorial. The county board acquiesced to the will of the very, very few and said a big NO to a wonderful idea. Thank you to the board members who voted yes!
