Lovelace Does Taxpayer's League Wednesday

County supervisor, Mark Lovelace, will be the special guest at the Humboldt Taxpayer's League meeting this month. He'll be discussing the recent proposal for the county to subsidize local air service.

I've read some complaints about that already. If you're one of those unhappy with the idea, here's your chance to get the whole scoop and perhaps voice your opinion to both Mr. Lovelace and The League.

The meeting starts with lunch at 11:45 and the general membership meeting beginning at 12:30 at the Samoa Cookhouse. The full meeting agenda is available at the Humboldt Taxpayer's League web page.

Addendum: The Lost Coast Outpost has a good explanation of what this is all about.

I'm opposed simply because Headwaters funds are being used. The county should never grant money to itself, and certainly not for such a dubious economic benefit that will be a temporary fix to a minor problem affecting a handful of influential organizations.

The reason our politicians are supporting this giveaway to an airline is simple. Our leaders are clueless about how to nurture drop growth and they can look like they are doing something if they expand airline service for a short time.
