Pending announcements on prison closings are focused on facililties in Watertown and Ogdensburg.
The decision on which beds to eliminate was put off till lawmakers left Albany, leaving the bad new in the hands of the Governor. It is doubtful the Cuomo plan will be reversible.
There are four Senate districts likely immune from closure. Those are the ones represented by GOP Senators who crossed the aisle on the SSM vote. Those communities with strong enough ambient economies to withstand a closure might be more vulnerable. That makes me wonder about Dry Hill.
Of course, we all realize the cuts are part of the measures to balance the budget and save taxpayers money. So while we respect the goal, don't look for affected communties to endorse the results.
