POGO on Local News to Stop F-35s in Vermont

Project On Government Oversight Executive Director Danielle Brian appeared on Vermont local news this week to talk about why the Air Force’s F-35 fighter jet should not be based in the highly populated area of Burlington. See the clip above, from WPTZ News Channel 5.

In addition to safety concerns, basing the jets in Burlington is estimated to cost at least four times as much as other potential locations.

Read POGO’s letter to Air Force leaders urging them to delay this confusing and potentially dangerous decision, and then send your own letter to the Air Force.
