Businessman Uses WH Website to Lure Shuttle to Dayton

By    |   Thursday, 27 October 2011 04:35 AM EDT

The U.S. Air Force Museum may get to display a retired space shuttle, after an Ohio businessman used the White House’s website to petition the Obama administration to review NASA’s decision to send the shuttles to New York and other states.
 
John Cavanaugh of Cleveland told the Dayton Daily News he used the White House’s “We the People” page, launched on Sept. 22, which aims to give Americans a new way to petition the government.
 
Cavanaugh needed 5,000 signatures to get the White House to review the petition. In just a few weeks, he had 5,500 signatures.
 
The businessman said he launched the petition because the shuttle could help Ohio’s economy. He argues the Dayton museum already has the capability to house the shuttle, while if it is sent to New York’s Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, a new division will need to be built.
 
“Clearly, the ball is now in the White House’s court,” he said.
