On F-35s in Madison: Increasing Inequities Are In Direct Conflict With Solutions to Address Racism

Madison365.com, September 25, 2019  – Sabrina Madison


Working to help restore Black families isn’t light work. Many of the families who benefit from my leadership and that of many others would have to take on yet another burden that lessens the quality of our lives by the placement of these new F-35’s in our area. We are already working to resolve housing inequities, pay gaps, low investments in education, and higher arrest rates among other issues. Increasing inequities are in direct conflict with solutions to address racism in the county, therefore, I oppose the location of the proposed squadron of F-35A fighter jets at Truax Field.
