Racing shouldn’t be a priority
Re: July 20 article “Grand Prix trip has Combs ready for F1.”
If state Comptroller Susan Combs is so enthusiastic about bringing racing to Texas, let her pay for it, not the taxpayers of Texas.
It is obscene to be cutting mental health and other crucial programs while giving $25 million of state money to a sports promoter. And in Austin, of all places. This city is trying desperately to be the greenest city in the country, and the very last thing we need is our mayor endorsing auto racing in our community.
