Santa Monica Airport Fight

The future of the Santa Monica Airport is at the center of a fight between the rich and the super rich. People who live in the wealthy neighborhood around the airport have been agitating for years to shut it down. But the city’s hands have been tied by an agreement with the Federal Aviation Administration to keep the airport open. That agreement runs out in July next year. So that brings us to next week’s election, where there are two competing measures on Tuesday’s ballot regarding the airport.
