Bahamas Chatter: Staniel Cay (Exumas) Airport
Posted: 13 Aug 2015 02:07 PM PDT
Dear Staniel Cay Supporter:
You can take action to help! On August 12, we delivered a petition letter to the Prime Minister of the Bahamas and other key officials, urging the Government to repair and reopen the Staniel Cay airport immediately. The hard copy petition is signed by 164 people – nearly all Staniel Cay residents (locals and foreign homeowners alike), business owners and every private island between here and the Exuma Park headquarters.
Of course, many more people and entities are affected by the airport closure as well. We now seek widespread signatures from the many other supporters of Staniel Cay: extended families of Staniel Cay locals; families and guests of homeowners; families and clients of business owners; private cay owners/operators/families/staff/guests; boaters and cruisers; SCYC and rental home guests; private pilots; charter companies; pilot organizations; fly-in tour groups; suppliers; tourism agencies; and any other person or entity who experiences the negative impact of the Staniel Cay airport closure and urges its immediate repair/reopening. We have established an online petition to reach as many affected persons as possible.
Please go to http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/staniel-airport to read the August 12th letter from Concerned Citizens of Staniel Cay & Vicinity and SIGN YOUR NAME IN SUPPORT. Please sign as soon as possible so we can cite a strong number of online signatures. (If you are seeing this belatedly, we still welcome your signature as we will continue to cite growing numbers in ongoing efforts with officials.) Please continue to visit the site for updates and any further calls to action.
PLEASE FORWARD this information to your own contacts and networks of Staniel Cay-related persons/businesses to encourage their online signatures as well. We sincerely apologize for duplicate emails you may receive as word of this important initiative spreads.
Huge thanks to all signers! To all of you who love Staniel Cay, thank you for your continued support of this special Cay, and let’s get our airport up and running again!
Dawn Spivey & Brooks Miller
