LET'S BID THE MEXICAN FLIGHT ROUTES

I think most people believe flights to Mexico are a good thing - although McAllen a significantly more successful airport than Brownsville failed at the flights.  And fuel costs are going up causing airlines to already cut routes and flights.
Pan Am was told no public money when it asked about commericial flights - Why was Fly Frontera given a different deal than Pan Am?. Pan Am is already here and operating.  But Pan Am did not offer kick backs.
What is the big deal of the COB simply saying to everyone Pan Am, Fly Brownsville and everyone else. There is a million dollars on the table for start-up assistance -  make your best offer - the COB will review who is making the best offer to the city and award the contract.
Transparency - yea not going to happen - Pan Am will never offer a kick back.

This is the truth people - if the question is what is best for Brownsville then why not open it to bidding? Answer - it is what is best for Atkinson and Camarillo.

All airlines are subsidized by government. Without the subsidies, all airlines will fail to make a profit. The reason we subsidize the airlines is to give the public access to faster transportation at of course government expense. So far, people are ok with this arrangement. However, the Fly Frontera needs to be examined thoroughly. A needs assessment needs to be completed and addressed to the city commission. How many people will use these flight to Mexico? What is the cost benefit analysis for this type of venture? Will this create jobs for the City of Brownsville? Will this create tourism for the City of Brownsville? Or are we simply giving a million dollars away to benefit the very few with deep pockets at taxpayers expense? What do the candidates have to say on this? We are waiting for your viewpoints before the elections. What say you?
