WPA State President John Dobson
What's in it for ME?
Membership in the WPA requires YOUR immediate attention.
It's time to renew / join NOW for 2016! What's in it for you?
Let's talk about your pocket book and the future of aviation in
the State of Washington. Let’s talk Advocacy!
I have had the privilege of serving on several advisory
boards looking for ways to fund our airport infrastructure. As
many of you know my position at the Port of Shelton (Sanderson
Field) has given me a unique and firsthand look at airport
financing. There is a very strong movement afoot to, ". . .
provide WSDOT Aviation with feasible solutions and . . .
strategies that . . . aviation stakeholders may leverage to
address the statewide airport preservation and capital needs". In
simple terms, our 134 airports will need $3.6 billion over the
next 20 years! WSDOT Aviation needs to grow its budget from $1.4
million per year to $12 million per year!
