What? The taxpayer funded, maintained, not supported Playpen for 25-30 rich folks that has sucked $15 Million dollars out of the taxpayer's pockets, gets an award? For what?

When is the Airport Authority, the Economic Developement Guys and the EDC's new puppet, Jenkins, going to have an open forum/question/answer meeting to explain all these alledged benefits of the Airport? They gave a briefing to the Rotary Club, what about the other taxpayers that foot the bill for the Playpen for 25-30 people? The AA says they are now going to start counting planes that use the Airport, hmmmm, what are they going to count, takeoffs and landing? Individual planes that land and takeoff? Or, are they going to skew the statistics by counting one plan, that lands and takes off 10 times in one month, as 20 Planes using the Airport. Look for false statistics to cove the fact that they can't justify all that expense! Oh, where/what are those 122 jobs the Airport supposedly created? Where/how is that $8 Million annually generated and who gets it? The taxpayers want to know!

This reminds me of the EDC last year giving themselves a made up award for being "entrepenuers" and they had a big dinner to celebrate it. The Franklin PRess story didn't mention a thing the EDC had done though except give themselves an award!

Way smarter than you, if you want to use the term "smart", I choose informed vs. your ignorance of the facts!

"Dumb" is not even the right word for Andy's kind of comment, but "ignorant" is, not a clue that he is being used by the big guys up here to make "ignorant" responses on their behalf. LOLOLOL Get a grip, Andy. Learn a little of all this political incest before you speak out------unless you're in their pocket and speaking for them.
