The attitude of the general public towards our service members has changed for the better since those days of Vietnam but, in many respects since then, it’s been lip service from those who are responsible for public policies and investment in our veterans and their families. As an institution, the VA has failed many of us largely, both as a result of inattention on the part of those elected officials who were supposed to be watching out for our best interest, but also because the managers of that system first lied to themselves and then to the gatekeepers.

So, the Mesa city board is seriously considering “forgiving” the $70 million-plus debt owed by the airport to the city taxpayers. This, because the airport, which has only recently managed to break “even” on its operating expenses, probably will never be able to become a standalone, profitable entity without it.

This is our hard-earned dollars entrusted to the City Council to improve our future and provide us with a positive investment return. We deserve to be consulted on your plans and see substantiation for continued investment — which is what a debt forgiveness constitutes... Anything less is absolutely disrespectful.
