How Hard Is He Really Trying?

One has to wonder with all his statements about the FAA's plans to redesign our airspace, how hard Representative Scott Garrett is actually working to protect our quality of life. As pointed out by Herb Jackson of the Record, Garrett was the only one in the entire Congressional Delegation not to sign a letter demanding that efforts to elevate JFK's delay problems don't burden NJ residents.

I realize I had pointed out that Garrett was taking credit for an amendment he didn't actually introduce on the flight redesign plan, but this was an easy way to go on record as opposing increased noise. Why wouldn't Garrett sign the letter? Was it because he doesn't actually oppose the increased noise in Bergen County? Or was it because his reputation within the delegation is so bad he wasn't invited to join?
