Bobkat,
I am not a fan of term limits. I believe more emphasis should be put on getting people to vote or somehow leveling the playing field for candidates prior to primaries.
It's a subject that I am more than willing to exchange ideas with others.
It's a good subject to talk about.
Start another thread and see what comes about.

Again you show that you know nothing. You do know where Ocean Shores is?
No , I don't. But I do know how to make potato soup and that apples are on sale at Shaw's.

This is about the new partners: Democrats and Crony Capitalists --the Cronycrats.

When you see the head of the Democrat Town Committee out on the town with the head of the Chamber of Commerce...'nuf said.

Or, in other words, the chairman of the Charter Review Committee out with the now appointed new town administrator who, under the new Town Charter (if approved) would become the towns' first Town Manager.
Why do so many officials FEAR and kowtow to the Marshfield Airport gang?

What is the source of their power? Does it involve some kind of unseemly enterprise? A government entity?

Trying to understand WHY anybody would need to fly a jet from Marshfield to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania so often and, WHO would pay for that? That's gotta be thousands of dollars for EACH round trip.

SO, this morning a network news show covered the topic of 'EAS" - a federal program that subsidizes and often pays for EMPTY SEATS on aircraft to fly to and from smaller airports. The report said that on average, YOUR taxdollars and airline ticket fees are used to pay out an average of over $900 PER SEAT for this program. The total cost of the program is well over $200 MILLION per year!!!

Here's the report: http://fullmeasure.news/news/politics/plane-waste

And, here's an excerpt and a link from the government's website:

"The Airline Deregulation Act (ADA), passed in 1978, gave air carriers almost total freedom to determine which markets to serve domestically and what fares to charge for that service. The Essential Air Service (EAS) program was put into place to guarantee that small communities that were served by certificated air carriers before airline deregulation maintain a minimal level of scheduled air service. The United States Department of Transportation (the Department) is mandated to provide eligible EAS communities with access to the National Air Transportation System. This is generally accomplished by subsidizing two round trips a day with 30- to 50-seat aircraft, or additional frequencies with aircraft with 9-seat or fewer, usually to a large- or medium-hub airport. The Department currently subsidizes commuter and certificated air carriers to serve approximately 60 communities in Alaska and 115 communities in the lower 48 contiguous states that otherwise would not receive any scheduled air service."

Just wondering if this is how the people that are leasing the space at Marshfield and providing flight service are making money and...marveling at the power of the aircraft industry's lobbying power.

Joseph why do you mislead people all the time. There is no commercial air carriers Marshfield airport. ADA is only for commercial air carriers. Why don't you go to page 50 on the Senate GOP Tax bill and you will see your Republicans buddies are giving a tax break to people that have private jets. Maybe the CEO of a company based around Harrisburg Pennsylvania lives in the South Shore area. Maybe one of his perks written into contact is use of a private jet. Do you think the CEO of GE is going to move out of New York City when the head quarters moves to Boston think again.

bobkat-
Why do you twist what others say and thus mislead the readers about what is being said?

I wrote in part:

....

The FAA has numerous programs for subsidizing airports and transport providers. The programs look very extensive and complicated. Besides the federal and state grants, totaling over $18 MILLION so far, I am wondering what else the "airport" is receiving. From what I have read, 'air carriers' is NOT just major commercial airlines with big jets but, appears to include smaller companies and charters with aircraft of 9 or LESS passenger seats. The company 'WheelsUP' - which by the way has an ad showing Tom Brady as a customer, has planes that are being spotted operating out of Marshfield. Other carriers can lease/sub-contract aircraft - including the jets flying in and out of Marshfield.

Simple question.

Also, another simple question: WHY would anybody need to fly a jet from Marshfield to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania so often and, WHO would pay for that?

I doubt it is a day commute to a job in Pennsylvania. Typically, the flight leaves Marshfield early in the morning, appears to be on the ground for a brief time (1/2 to 2 hours), and then, comes right back to Marshfield.

If you know something please enlighten. If you are just blowing gas from your southern orifice (Which is what you always do.), please keep it to yourself.

The only thing I could suggest to this interesting subject is to write/email the govt agency in charge of funding this program and ask for a copy of payouts. I would imagine that they keep records of who puts in for reimbursement and reason. It's our tax dollars so I would imagine federal agency needs to keep a record of where the money goes.

Joseph again you have a habit of not telling the truth. The only reason I will respond to you is that you are negative for the town of Marshfield. Put it blunt you are a loser in all parts of life.

The jet you talk about flying to Harrisburg Pa is privately owned and leased by Shore Line Aviation . There are a group of people who charter it from Shore Line Aviation on a daily bases. With all your free time because you can not hold a good paying job. I would suggest that you stand in the parking lot at the airport .Then ask the people who charters this jet .Who they work for and represent. Then you will know who is picking up the tab. Then may you could ask them for a job so you could ride in the jet.

Saw the newly created monument to bobkat. The committee decided on this design over an empty barrel. Symbolizing his achievements as a candidate for the DPW Board, talk show co-host, his outstanding contributions to public debate and participation in town government. Enjoy the status and your allowance, boobie.
