Having an Airbnb has provided me and my family with many wonderful opportunities including meeting new people from different states and even countries, making lifetime friends, allowing my children to take piano, la crosse and baseball. Allowing me to feed and clothe my children especially since their father isn't currently providing for their needs. -I appreciate the trust, safety and messaging tools that help me get to know the people whom I'll be sharing my home and family with. -Airbnb is an important option for middle class families in America and especially my family. - Guests who stay in Airbnb listings generate sustainable, local economic activity that supports the small businesses in Salt Lake City and the surrounding valley. I am sincerely grateful for this opportunity and as a family we have loved the experience. Thank you for allowing me to comment on this very important economic development tool.
