Newsflash! County announces boardings are down at the majorly "Griffis International Airport"! Despite Picente pumping millions of $ of taxpayer funds into the majorly airport, nobody uses it! No private carriers use the airport! No passenger service! Millions wasted! But Picente wants more!
That's all folks! In Dogpatch County politicians waste millions of dollars on a white elephant of an airport that gets no use! It's like pissing in the ocean! But we'll spend more!

Didn't Louie Raya scam money out of this deal as some kind of airport commish? Just like his sister is still trying to sue st e's hospital so she can collect $ for nothing.

Yah but its on the site of the old air force base and super successfull technology park.. There's even a bank and hotel there.. You can't tell me people don't fly in to do their banking and stay the night ? Even possibly watch an RFA sporting event or tour the B52 parked up there then tour the great fort stanwix !!! I thought that was why they put the airport there in the 1st place ? Plus all the companies TECHING out of their pants up there you can just feel the vibrant energy emitting from the place !!!!!!
They would have been better off agreeing to have Woodstock there every 5 years it would have made more money for them... There was also a rumor long ago that NASCAR and NHRA were interested in making a speedway there with a national event for both racing affiliates, but I believe county officials said at the time that they didn't want that type of "element" visiting the area annually.. But a year later agreed to Woodstock, go faking figure.. At least a motorsports complex would have garnered a decent seasonal economic impact.. Now they have an airport with no traffic and a bunch of just about to go under "technology" companies sucking off tax breaks... The whole thing is a joke...

You're correct but it don't matter! That's how we do things in Dogpatch County! We piss away millions of $$ on an "international airport" that sits idle! Let's rename the airport! Let's call it Dogpatch County Airport!
In Dogpatch County we piss away millions of $$ on an airport that the runways are only used as a breeding ground for weeds! There's so much air traffic that the feds closed down the control tower! But wait, we're expecting a major announcement soon! Air traffic will increase! Yessirree!
