    Community values? Whose community vaues do they violate exactly? Perhaps you should not assume you speak for “the community.”

    The fact that it also coincides with the opening weekend of the State Fair and BYU's home opener as well as doesn't matter. No one should expect extra service for any event then because of someones interpretation of ones community values.

    The amount of tax dollars going to the extra service is minuscule (basically $0.00) due to an agreement between FanX and UTA. FanX pays UTA for some additional service. This is the same arrangement as the LDS Church for on Conference Weekends. No tax dollars there either.

    Community support for FanX (Comic Con) is high. You may be in a very small minority. Support for the event stretches to Wyoming, Nevada, Idaho, and Montana for regular attendees. There are attendees from across the Country and even some from around the world.

    If the show was against the majority of the communities values, I would not think that the attendance would be as high, let alone the draw from as far as it is.

    The only thing that would have made the weekend busier is if Utah also had a home game this weekend as it did last year. But this year, Snoop Dog is in Concert at Pioneer Park this weekend.

    I sincerely disagree with this decision. My tax dollars should not go to fund transportation to an event that does not match the community values. UTA should not be encouraging attendance at FanX.
