Dave Sullivan won't be in the lineup when the City Council meets Tuesday. While his council colleagues take their turn batting around a usual array of zoning changes, appeals for sign permits and conditional use permits, Sullivan and his teammates will be on their way to Scottsdale, Ariz., to compete in the Senior Softball World Championships. Sullivan, 56, is a starting outfielder on a slow pitch team in the Huntington Beach recreation softball league for those 55 to 60 years old.

Three months before the election, the campaign money that foes of a proposed El Toro airport had promised supervisorial candidate Dave Sullivan has yet to arrive. Sullivan, who is running on an anti-airport platform, received $17,500 in contributions from May 17 to June 30, along with a $9,200 loan he made to his campaign, according to documents released Friday. The incumbent, pro-airport Supervisor Jim Silva, raised $52,025 in the same period.

The latest attempt to block development of an international airport at El Toro failed Tuesday when voters reelected Board of Supervisors Chairman Jim Silva, maintaining the board's solid pro-airport majority.

Seeking to touch a nerve with voters in a key race for Orange County supervisor, candidate Dave Sullivan suggested this week that the government swap a developer's Bolsa Chica property for a portion of the Marine Corps Air Station at El Toro.
