We need every penny we can scrounge up for repairing our biosphere, instead of spending atrocious amounts more on further destruction. 12/10/10 ---UPDATE --- This petition will remain open for as long as this is an undecided issue.
A couple days ago, "This poll has closed but you can still comment, below."
Great work on the poll everyone, THANK YOU!!!! you did it! --- in about one week, outvoted the opposition. Special thanks to all those who networked this on FaceBook and other places! 

Starting from behind, on 11/28/10 at which time the 'NO' votes were at 284, ~22% and the  'YES' votes were at 706, ~78%   
12/07 total new votes since our campaign began 680no:22yes 
which is an overall average of a little less than 31no's to each new yes  
56.5% : 43.5% 

TOTAL 944no : 728yes out of 1,672 total votes  
Wonder if they would have left the poll open longer if the numbers had been going the other way???

Targeting Congress as it is in charge of military spending allocations.
Cannon Air Force Base would very likely not read this petition below. 
However, flooding them with emails will give them a big message if you are motivated to try the email addy directly --- to: Larry van der Oord, Capt, USAF  --- 27SOWPublicAffairs@cannon.af.mil .  
It would let them know that word is getting out beyond the local protest campaign.
They have already read this letter  below when I sent it during the local comment period. and it is on the record.

Thank you for your comments regarding the Low Altitude Tactical
Navigation (LATN) proposal.  They have been recorded and will be
forwarded to the agency handling the Environmental Assessment.  The U.S.
Air Force is still in the very early stages of the LATN proposal, and
the social and environmental impacts of the proposal will be carefully
considered before any possible implementation.

Please continue to check the right-most column of our website,

Thank you,


Larry van der Oord, Capt, USAF
