Letter: City wasted time, money fighting Paine flights

Aug 02, 2017

I find the entire dialog over Paine Field somewhat humorous. When we moved here 30 years ago, we understood and knew Paine Field would eventually support commercial airline activity.

It was suggested then that the best approach to Paine Field activity should be focused on the size of airplanes and flight times. But the city, and the SOC, focused on legal and costly – more than $500,000 – solutions without taxpayer approval and with no chance of success.

Could these funds have been used in a more positive way? A substantial amount of money and time has been wasted on the wrong issues surrounding Paine Field's commercial activity.

I hope it is not too late for the city to refocus on the right things related to Paine Field. I hope you use your vote for Mukilteo’s future leadership wisely.
