There's more to come on this subject throughout the day.
But I have a wandering mind... And this whole "tourism bureau" just makes my skin crawl. It's not needed! What is needed is reduced government spending! Jobs! Putting the golf course in private hands. Jobs! For Government to stop picking winners and losers as in which nonprofit is served, which isn't, which business needs incentives, which doesn't, yada yada yada. Jobs. Jobs. Jobs.
That being said, I "wonder" exactly what are our County Commissioners/Manager thinking when it is suggested to put the hot button "Tourism Bureau" under the Chamber of Commerce? That idea seems to be making its way through the halls over at Hillcrest Drive.
The last I looked the Chamber organization represents "Paying Customers". What about those who don't become members? Will the Tourism Bureau represent them too? Where's the guarantee?
Like I said more to come...but YOU, the citizen, need to know this has not been put to rest. One way or another they will ride the train off the tracks to get a tourism bureau established!
Told you...we make the obscene the obvious. No matter which side of the track you're on.
Somebody please...reason with me. I've got to go. Coffee is needed to calm me down.
