The Newport Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce's Business and Community Political Action Committee has endorsed three City Council candidates for the Nov. 7 election.

The committee's 12-member board of trustees unanimously endorsed Gary L. Proctor for District 2, Steve Bromberg for District 5 and Robert L. Wynn for District 7.

Although the chamber does not usually endorse candidates on the basis of a single issue, Proctor was chosen for his stance on limiting flights at John Wayne Airport and pushing for an airport at El Toro, said Richard Luehrs, the chamber's president and chief executive, as well as a committee trustee.

The committee chose Bromberg because of his experience as a professional arbitrator and mediator, Luehrs added. Wynn made the cut because of his work for the city during 20 years as city manager, Luehrs said.

All candidates--except District 5 candidate Robert Schoonmaker, who declined the opportunity--were interviewed by the committee.
