Duncan letter: F-35 mission

How do we know if we can live with the F-35 mission in Boise? Before we are committed to this long-term event, wouldn’t it be in our best interest to have a testing period? A person would not buy a car without first test-driving it to make sure it is the right fit. And, with all the skepticism of our political leaders recently, do we really believe that this is in our best interest? Being a conservative state, we should be more focused on not being reliant on the government for a paycheck, and more focused on free enterprise and attracting businesses to Idaho. I am a lifelong Idahoan and a conservative, and I am concerned about our quality of life.

John Duncan, Meridian
