New ideas might help

To the Editor:

I am a former resident of Fairmont and would like to comment on the proposal for drag racing at the airport. If the feds say no that is one thing, but because it would inconvenience some people who have planes at the airport that’s another.

Millions of taxpayer dollars have gone into that airport, and that is from all taxpayers, not just the ones who have planes there.

Fairmont’s growth has been stagnant for years and as a key airport I would have to ask, key to what? New ideas are needed.
