Federal Way residents who care about the noise and air pollution and suffer under the flight paths of airplanes headed to and from Sea-Tac need to vote for Ryan Calkins, candidate for port commissioner.
The incumbent, 10 years a port commissioner, is focused upon maximizing the number of take offs and landings that can be squeezed into a 24-hour day. He has no interest in or awareness of the impact on thousands of citizens who are subject to the increased noise and air pollution of this aggressive growth he is promoting for Sea-Tac, and he appears to be unreliable, or at least his word is. Many Federal Way residents received a call inviting us to meet him Oct. 18 at Poverty Bay Cafe to discuss our concerns. When he had not appeared by 3:45 p.m., most of us left. There was no apology call.
Ryan Calkins needs our votes, and we need Ryan Calkins. He is aware of and concerned about the air and noise pollution generated by flights in and out of Sea-Tac and he recognizes that the area south of Sea-Tac suffers a disproportionate number of take offs and landings.
Please vote for Ryan Calkins for port commissioner.
Karin and Bill Feldt, Federal Way
