Idea Stacking

"I understand the Mayor needs a voice here but simply parroting too big/too few is not a wise one. I've said this repeatedly and clearly need to say it again. The mercy flights for All Children's Hospital and Bayfront Hospital save children's lives, bring in organ transplants and other vital medical supplies. I'm confident no sane person would deny the value of those flights, including you. On another note the land is only 8 feet above sea level, very little can be built on it for future use much less a new ball park for the Rays or any type of permanent housing. Finally, a lot can happen in 19 years, just look at 2018 vs 2022 to know the truth of time.I don't think it's wise to fight a future that has yet to arrive when there are so many current pressing issues, like staffing, that need immediate attention."
"Supporting local businesses is important. I am surprised that the mayor has not frequented the Hanger restaurant right at AW! Take your daughter for lunch, Sir. Watch the planes take off. It is tiresome to hear of another land grab attempt on the jewel of our City, Albert Whitted. I cannot support any official who blatantly disregards the will of the people, or is shortsighted in the community value afforded everyone by maintaining the airport."
