Letter: Airport commission meeting turned dumb

To the editor:

I attended the Airport Commissioner’s meeting on Thursday, March 22. During the first half hour the commissioners were quite able to accurately articulate the positive reasons for closing the airport altogether. Every one of their comments was clear, concise, to the point, and dead-on accurate. I decided to leave, however, when Mike Bradford said that the general public was too dumb to understand the complex formulas that indicate an economic benefit could be realized from the continued operation of the airport and that it wouldn’t be worth it to try to educate them. Thanks Mike, for excusing me early from what promised to be a boring meeting.
