Because of the importance of the OC Board of Supervisors to the ultimate outcome of the ongoing Airport Settlement Agreement negotiations, AirFair hosted a fundraiser last Thursday, 17 May for Todd Spitzer, candidate for OC Supervisor - Third District. The event was held at Evelyn and John Hart's waterfront home in Newport Beach. The Honorable Evelyn Hart is a board member of AirFair and former mayor of Newport Beach.
Todd Spitzer believes that John Wayne Airport is adequately serving the needs of Orange County at its present levels, and the 2003 Settlement Agreement should be extended as is.
Former Costa Mesa Mayor the Hon. Peter Buffa served as the M.C. for the evening. Among the dignitaries present were NB City Council members, Hon. Keith Curry, Hon. Rush Hill and Hon. Steve Rosansky. Newport Beach City Manager Dave Kiff and the Hon. Jean Watt, former Newport Beach City Council Member joined those listening to Mr. Spitzer's vision for the County. Also in attendance was Hon. Allan Mansoor, Ca State Assembly member from the 74 AD who is currently running for re election.
