John McCain Appearing in Sun Lakes Tonight

Filed under: Arizona,Chandler,John McCain — Amazing Jake @ 9:20 am

I haven't paid much attention to the potential expansion of Memorial Airfield on the Gila River reservation, but this may be of some interest:

Sen. John McCain is coming to Sun Lakes tonight.

Arizona's senior senator may tackle topics ranging from immigration to his presidential aspirations. But the main reason for the visit is by invitation from Concerned Residents About Memorial Airfield, a group worried that the Gila River Indian Community plans to expand the airfield into a commercial airport.

I guess if I lived IN Sun Lakes instead of near it, I might be concerned about the airfield.  I'm not really sure who was there first, the airfield or Sun Lakes.  But I'm pretty sure that most of the people living there, given the age restrictions, haven't lived there longer than the airfield, and should have known what was next door when they moved there.
