If You Can't Fight City Hall (Or The White House), Bill
He probably won't get paid, but you have to admire the
Jim Gray has submitted a bill to the White House and the
Democratic National Committee in the amount of $2565 dollars,
representing the business which has been lost at his Oakland Flyers
flight school during a campaign fund-raising visit by President
The visit Thursday night brought a TFR to the Bay area of
California from 1700 till 1000 Friday, which meant Gray's fleet sat
parked, students had to have their lessons cancelled, and both the
flight school and the instructors lost money.
Gray comments, "If it was for something related to global affairs,
I'd have no problem with it. But if it's just for fundraising, kind
of do it on somebody else's dime."
He shared his letter on ABC-7 TV. It says, in part, "In keeping
with the spirit of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, we
feel that this loss of revenue should not go unmitigated. We
appreciate your timely acknowledgement and payment."
