Look at Regan’s record, not negative attacks
To the Editor:
When you can’t match somebody’s record, you try to attack their character.
Gavin Regan, county clerk, has never said he initiated working with New York City car dealers; he even gave Patty Ritchie credit for a great idea when he was recently interviewed on WCKN. What he did do, and say, is that, within weeks after being appointed, he traveled to NYC and touched base with some dealers who had fallen away, and he also added several new dealers to those who work with our DMV. This effort has brought in added revenue to the county.
Dissolution of the village not good for anyone
To the Editor:
I just do not believe that dissolution of the Village of Potsdam is in anyone’s best interest, not the Village of Potsdam, not the Town of Potsdam Outside Villages (TOV), and not the Village of Norwood.
Other than pursuing a Special Police District which requires state approval and whose chances of implementation are extremely slim, the Town Board has been unwilling to give the Village any idea of what they will do after dissolution.
