Why??? That airport has become a non-event. No scheduled service, to speak of, and nowhere near the traffic it used to enjoy.
But it now has a longer runway to accomodate bigger aircraft and a big hanger.
Best examples of Tax money wasted

Hello? The hangar was not a waste of tax money. It was not built to house commercial airplanes (although I would love to see that too). It was built to bring in jobs to the area: people will be building/upgrading planes in the hangar. Anything that will bring in jobs is a good move.
On a separate note,

Perhaps to accomodate Air Force One?

Hello? Have you ever heard of "general aviation?" It's not all about ferrying your tourist butt to Myrtle Beach every summer. Corporate flights, charter service, flight schools, fuel sales, hanger space rentals, cargo flights, military aviation - all of these services and more rely on small, regional airports like Hagerstown's.
The vast majority of airports the size of Hagerstown's don't offer any commercial flight service, yet Hagerstown does. That's significant in itself. Any plane that doesn't belong to a major carrier overwhelmingly prefers to fly into regional airports like Hagerstown - particularly corporate and charter flights whose planes are getting bigger and bigger and bigger.
Having hang space available can also attract Fortune 500 companies to the area, with easy access to a regional airport and available hangar space, a large corporation may be inclined to relocate to a less expansive area like ours.
So don't be so quick to put your foot in your mouth - you have no clue what you're talking about.
