Santa Barbara needs its Silicon Valley link
Word that the Santa Barbara airport is about to lose its daily service to San Jose is a troubling development that threatens the 101 Technology Corridor’s link to the Silicon Valley.
But examples from San Luis Obispo show that a strong lobbying effort by business interests can keep service going. We think that a coalition of city officials, University of California Santa Barbara leaders and CEOs from Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties should mount a campaign to keep part of this business-to-business lifeline operating.
A strong Silicon Valley air connection is in the best interest of the entire region.
