Here are some more results from our polling of the board of directors of the taxpayers association. Again, if the airport is an economic issue, let’s see what businesses actually think about the airport authority’s ballot initiative:

  • Jimmy Van Norman, from Viejas Enterprises, said he voted at the taxpayers association and opposed the Miramar option.
  • George W. Hawkins, from the Associated Builders & Contractors of San Diego, said he did not attend the meeting, but agrees with the decision of the taxpayers association to oppose the Miramar initiative.
  • Philip L. Thalheimer, the former candidate for City Council and owner of San Diego Flight Training International, said he didn’t attend the meeting, didn’t vote and:

“The final decision represents the taxpayers association’s opinion – it is split right down the middle.”

Not sure what that means.

  • Robert Kevane, from Kevane Co. Inc. Real Estate, said he did not vote. He said he supports the airport authority’s ballot initiative and he thinks Miramar should be the home of the new airport.

I’ll stop after today.
