Let's Work From the Top Down

In todays Plattsburgh Press Republican:

Supervisor Joyce Morency (R-St. Armand), whose town borders the site where the new 120,000-square-foot retail store would be built, asked the County Board of Supervisors to support and aid the project.

But Supervisor Shirley Seney (R-North Elba), in whose town the store would be located, asked the board to do nothing yet.

"This is in the Town of North Elba, and no one has asked us to support it," Seney said. "I respectfully ask my colleagues to hold off until we know what they (residents) want."

Don't bother waiting to see how the residents of SL will handle the Wal-Mart issue, just bypass them and start supporting it at the County level. Might as well ignore the residents of the Town of North Elba while you are at it. At least Ms. Seney cares about what the Town of North Elba residents think about Wal-Mart locating here. Thank you Ms. Seney.
