In October, the FAA named Julie Marks, formerly of its Environmental Department, as the Community Involvement Manager for Airspace Projects. This only happened because of your efforts over the past 4 years, aided by our elected officials and with the cooperation of the many other community organizations around the country who are working with us to fight the same fight.
I told Sen. Schumer’s staff that I would like to invite Ms. Marks to a QQS membership meeting in early 2017. Sen. Schumer sent a letter to Ms. Marks, asking her to meet with his constituents’ community advocacy groups. In the NYC metro area, those groups are Queens Quiet Skies and Plane Sense 4 LI. We will soon start planning an event where we hope you will be able to meet Ms. Marks. I’ve attached the Senator’s letter so you can read it.
