EDCO is trying to entice American to start direct flights between central Oreogn and L.A. and is raising the money to show the community's interest in the flights.

"I think it's just important to remember, American didn't say to raise 350-thousand, that's what we offered. And I think we should make good on what we offered. It's not them pushign this agenda. It's trying to deliver on what's been put on the table."
