Out-of-Control Airport – Letter to the Editor, December 15, 2014

Dear David:

Now that the East Hampton Town Board has a raft of measurable data validating the antipathy of the East End community toward our out-of-control airport, it is time for our leaders to lead.

No one officially β€œled” us into this mess that threatens the very way of life for thousands of afflicted, innocent citizens β€” all of whom were here first, long before the airport morphed into a major regional destination for virtually every kind of aircraft, other than F-111s and lunar modules. But our current board members can lead us out of the mess β€” and do our community a great service.

Ban the hated helicopters. Ban the seaplanes that will replace the helicopters otherwise. Ban giant jets that roar over our villages, beaches, and woodlands, often with a single, absurdly insensitive, overtly polluting passenger. And tightly curfew the remainder.

We want our outdoors returned to us.
