Letter: Don’t eliminate flight for life helicopter

I am absolutely appalled and dismayed that there is an option on the table that would take away the ability to service and fuel our flight for life helicopter. Clearly, whoever thought of that has never had a loved one flown in an attempt to save their life. I have.
We need our local airport to ensure the ability to provide life-saving services to our community. Figure out another way to solve our housing issues, but not on the backs of those in dire need of life-saving medical care.
