Our Hard-Earned Tax Dollars At Work

World View Enterprises and Kentucky Fried Chicken recently announced plans to send a Kentucky Fried Chicken Zingler sandwich to an altitude of 15 miles in its unmanned balloon system on June 21, 2017.

Pima County tax payers financed the construction of World View’s $15 million headquarters and launch facility, courtesy of Chuck Huckleberry and members of the Pima County Board of Supervisors.

Why are the citizens of Pima County subsidizing this publicity stunt with their hard earned tax dollars, when these funds could have been better spent repairing our roads or providing better schools for our children?
