Daytona Beach decay of business opportunities is staggering as shown by the latest drop in passenger volume to the airport

The decay of jobs availability and opportunities for the creation of new businesses in Daytona Beach has been substantial the past few years. The latest figures of airport traffic at the Daytona Beach International Airport reflect a troubling development.

The ruinous policies of the Daytona City Commission have undoubtedly contributed to the deterioration of the business environment in the city. While a handful of businesses and private individuals coincidentally consisting of the largest campaign donors which have enjoyed prosperity and lucrative contracts with the city, the rest of the population has suffered.

We are seeing people who were former taxpayers but because of job losses and not being able to find work, are finding it difficult to put food on the table for their families

This is a staggering drop in passenger volume, many times the rate of decrease suffered by other cities during the same time period. Watch the Channel 13 video exposing this disturbing trend.
