It would seem with folks being let go as of recent, that tours are a waste of money that could be used to feed someone.

Public tours show people the

Public tours show people the positive work that actually gets done out there. This gives people a first-hand look at what goes on so they can be informed accurately rather than by the know-it-alls who post around here who think they know how to fix every issue out there with no actual knowledge of what goes on there. Accurate information increases public support. Public support = legislative pressure. Legislative pressure gets votes for more funding so people don't have to be let go so often.
