Can you answer the real question? Who wants to close our local Santa Monica airport....;cause Janice Hahn thinks it is a good idea! She is a crook...the Vue in San Pedro is in receivership!!!! Why do you think we are not paying attention to a land grab and more traffic in Santa Monica. Why don't you tell us how you really want to vote on closing our local airport and we will go from there.
