FLL View Park Online Petition - Now Up To 303

Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

Petition URL: http://www.petitiononline.com/openpark/petition.html

A little while ago the petition level was at 303 signatures with a lot of well-known photographers and writers who have signed from all over the world, and two well-known Noo Yawk area photogs who have not signed. I'll send a free 8x10 of any recently posted photo of mine that you want to the first person who figures out who they are and posts their guesses in this thread.

The Sun-Sentinel newspaper will be doing a follow-up article in the next couple of days and the reporter told me that his editor wants to do a separate article just on the online petition if we can get the total number of signatures up higher. He said the editor is impressed by the number we have so far, where people are from and what they are saying in their comments. Hopefully the article will have the online petition URL so more local residents can sign on to it.

When the petition is closed out in a week or two I will send e-mail copies of it and hard copies of it to a zillion different people and organizations so folks can see what a dumb decision at the airport can do to various other tourism-related entities.

Thanks to everyone who has signed and forwarded this information to other groups and clubs!

Don

Wow, the list of signatures reads like a "Who's Who" of the aviation photography world! Except the two missing ones of course...

Good luck!

Well my guess would be:

Joe Pries
and Tom Turner.

I bet JP is one of them and Tom was my guess, but Carlos came to mind, but he's a Newark guy. So possibly a 5x7 for me if I didn't hit it?  Big grin

Thats my guess.

The problem is that they are going to need Floridaians to sign it, they don't care what outsiders think, they care the most about people that can remove them from office.


At worst, you screw up and die.

Hint: I wrote says Noo Yawk area, not Noo Yawk, Dmitry and you're half right so far which equates to a 4 x 5 if you don't get the second guy correct.

And I agree with PPGMD's comment about local residents needing to sign it, although signatures from around the world will help our cause with several tourism organizations, the Hotel/Motel Association, the Restaurant Owners Association, the Florida Ladder Association (that's a joke), etc. These folks have some clout with the county commission.

Hopefully the Sun-Sentinel article will have the URL so local residents can sign on. I can't imagine them doing an article about the petition and not including the URL - would be kind of senseless. There were a lot of locals using that park on a daily basis and I can't imagine them not feeling the same way we do. Without the article I don't know of a way for locals to find out about the URL unless I stand along the road and pass flyers out to folks trying to get into the view park and I'm sure BSO will pick me up for a free ride somewhere if I do that.

Great! Maybe we can make some difference here. Seems as though MCO is a lost cause.  Pissed God, I'm so happy I moved from that ass backwards hell hole state.

Don, please keep up posted about anything further we can do to help!

Dmitry, I think its that drifter guy, Jose Prize that hasn't signed yet. Thats my guess.

Too bad Don mispent his youth scaring women away from the beach; we could have used him to save Noo Yawk's observation decks back when Joe and Carlos were little tykes on trikes.

Tom...
signature 300 & something....

How can you expect reason from a bunch of people who don't even know how to vote.

The only thing I can think of doing, is really making popular those airports who have management that doesn't have it's head up its ass and refuse to travel through those that do.

Dmitry, it was Carlos "Dingo Dog" Borda who had not signed and now he has. So you got the crooked eye guy correct. Send me a private e-mail about which recent upload you want an 8x10 of. Send me $5US and I'll tell you why Carlos has that nickname in a close group of friends.

Well, right now we're up to 368 with the addition of Michel Moskal from Just Planes Videos. Joe Baumann is e-mailing aviation site owners and asking them to sign the petition and get their website listed for free. That might be a good idea.

Any help in getting more signatures onto the petition would be appreciated!

Don

One of the email responses received from a commissioner:

"It is the airport's respnsiblity to follow the federal guidelines and protect
the public."
Hmmmm...not very constructive.

The petition's up to 387. Good to see so much interest.
