Dear Policy maker: AirBnB has been a helpful albeit small additional income for us. Our guests are only able to come to our area as a result of our inexpensive overnight option. They can't afford the local hotels. Usually they are here on employment chores for the navy or other work ventures. We enjoy having them and they enjoy staying with us. If it were not for Airbnb they would not be able to come to our community and boos the local economy.
