In his letter to the editor, Mr. Bain states in regards to Santa Monica, “none of the former mayors, the current, as well as the City Council members have ever served in the military.”
Herb Katz (former mayor and council member – 16 years) and I(former mayor and council member – 24 years) both served in the military. Herb was in the United States Marine Corps Reserve and I served six years in the California Air National Guard (one year of active duty in the United States Air Force). I am proud to have served my country and my city; I know Herb was as well.
The value of the airport
This airport is a historical site. It’s here to protect and provide for our citizens. We need to upgrade and expand for practical and historical reasons. “LET’S INVEST.” Don’t let a few make up your mind for you.
