Are you are interested in telling your story – aircraft traffic in Accokeek

I have made a few phone calls to the television and newspaper media trying to get them to do a story on aircraft traffic in Accokeek. I was informed, that I would need more people than just myself to generate coverage from the media. If any of you will be interested in talking to the media for a possible story, message me that you are interested in telling your story. I believe with time and a little effort we can get at least 30 people who will be willing to tell their story to the media. Reasons why I think there may be interest from the media in our predicament: Classic David vs Goliath battle: Political power from Northern Virginia influenced moving air traffic from the Virginia side of the river to the Maryland side of the river. Political power from Montgomery County and Georgetown DC influenced moving air traffic from the South Arrival to the North Arrival Our National, State, and local politicians flocking to help our wealthy neighbors to the north and ignoring our areas. The unfairness of the process: The FAA wrote the rules. Direct aircraft flight paths to those areas that have the smallest population and the least political power. Using these rules anyone could have predicted this part of Maryland would get the air traffic. The injustice of creating a system where the Airlines get all of the benefits and a population who do not often fly on airplane pay all the cost. The aircraft flying over Accokeek and other areas is a new development, the noise was nonexistence when most of us purchased our homes. The cost to the residence in lower property values and health problems: Studies that show how being located under a flight path to an airport will lower your property values Studies that show how being located under a flight path to an airport will affect your health. If we can find some sympathetic, interesting, articulate, people to tell their story how their quality of life has declined since the aircraft started flying low over their neighborhood. I believe the media will love the story.
