Perhaps our elected officials will take heed and realize that they are spending millions of dollars on a useless runway at the Hilton Head Island Airport. Or are they just puppets to the fat cats who just want convenience rather then traveling all the way to the Savannah airport?
To me, money would be better spent on bettering our schools and giving our teachers pay raises.

I'm just thinking of the future of Hilton Head. The only way to attract young people to the area is a great school system and jobs, none of which the airport can help.
