Measure W Appeal's Argument Is Flawed

April 14, 2002

Re "El Toro's Future," March 9:

Barbara Lichman of the Airport Working Group has already decided to sue to get Measure W thrown out by the courts. She has indicated that it is unconstitutional for the public to vote on land-use issues. Wouldn't this then mean that Measure A, which zoned El Toro as an airport in 1994, also would be unconstitutional?

Someone please tell Lichman that the people have spoken, and that they do not want an airport. The Navy can sell the property off in parcels to the highest bidder and the county can get on to the more pressing issues: education, housing and health care. It is time to put the attorneys away and do what is best for Orange County, not the Airport Working Group.
