Disappointed with Cuomo’s gay rights stand
To the Editor:
I was surprised and shocked when I heard on the radio a few weeks ago that one of Gov. Cuomo’s three top priorities was the legalization of gay marriage.
I wrote the following letter to him at that time. I sent copies to a state senator and an assemblyperson.
Dear Gov. Cuomo:
I am so very disappointed that gay rights is one of your top three priorities.
You along with some other states have or are trying to legalize what Sodom was destroyed for.
Where does it end?
I read the article in the Courier regarding dissolution. To quote one resident: “maybe the people outside the village should be paying a little more for things we all use.” A couple of those mentioned were the Potsdam airport and museum. I live in Norwood and have never used the airport or museum and doubt I will. I realize they are referring to other things as well but those were the two mentioned. Yes I travel to Potsdam using their roads and am protected by their police while there but come on! Do Village of Potsdam residents use village roads exclusively?
Am I the only one that sees the irony in the Village of Potsdam police pressing felony charges against a man who took money without performing the work he contracted for when Potsdam taxpayers have half a structure that is supposed to be a hydro dam sitting empty and no one pressing charges/suing to get our tax dollars returned? Who is in charge of the hydro dam disaster? Better question: How did the company that took Potsdam’s money make it worthwhile to not pursue the matter legally?
