Comment on Charlotte City Council Subsidy of Carowinds

Dear Editors:

I had to laugh reading the comments of City Council members who supported the subsidy for the Carowinds expansion.  Carowinds’ owner Cedar Fair Entertainment probably paid millions for the adjoining 61 acres two years before the subsidy matter came up. What was their intention?  To establish housing for the homeless?

Where are all the ‘free market’ warriors who scream to get government out of our lives? Council should not ask staff to consider revision of this excessive freebie program, but instead vote to scrap it.
