At the last meeting, the Council voted against expanding the board from the current five seats to seven seats.  But some, including Citizens Against Gillespie Expansion (CAGE) wants to see a council that includes representation from citizens in the community, not just cities and pilots’ interests.

ADVOCATES QUESTION SPENDING AT GILLESPIE FIELD

 

By Nadin Abbott

September  18, 2014 (San Diego)-- Robert Germann,  spokesman for Citizens Against Gillespie Expansion (CAGE), spoke before the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday to make a presentation. He wants to know the reason for a large increase in funds allocated for Gillespie Field airport that has been kept hidden from the public.

He told the Board, “According to the California Division of Aeronautics, Gillespie Field is slated to receive nearly $417 million."

He added that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will give the El Cajon Center $10.63 million. Yet the County stated that the field is only going to receive $232,070, said Germann. He asked why there is such a discrepancy?
