Community members are questioning the Navy as contradictory information regarding the Joint Strike Fighter home basing is being revealed. 

In comparing data the Navy sent U.S. Rep. Juan Vargas one year ago on the specific ranges the F-35C would be sent to if it were home based at Naval Air Facility El Centro along with costs associated with those flights to data sent to the House Armed Services Committee just last month on the same information, it’s clear the numbers are significantly different. 

As the County beat reporter, I cover the Board of Supervisors and the city councils for El Centro and Imperial, as well as health issues and community events. I received a Master's degree in Specialized Journalism from USC Annenberg in 2013.
