Albany to Stop Poisoning Orleans Residents.....Thank You

      We are well conditioned. The State of NY causes a problem....drags its feet in a way a private firm could not.....and only responds when the political heat threatens the electability of a member of the Governor's party....
     And we say Albany "stepped up".
      I understand the squeaky wheel theory and responding is what politics is about.
      Hillary Clinton says the Governor of Michigan "poisoned" children in order to save money. We wouldn't want her to have to say that here.
       Now, I wonder if something will be done for that lady up in Fine who has been using bottled water for years due to a DOT salt pile run amuck.

The Town of Pitcairn deserves help too.

Maybe the Town of Orleans will help Pitcairn, none of the Politicians from our area have helped in all the years with our Salt Problems.

Ken Blankenbush where are you ??

JUMP ON THE " BANDWAGON ", HELP THE TOWN OF PITCAIRN.

By the way folks when Blankenbush going to do his job for his district on the same problem.

The whole situation is very odd, state poisons wells and they get to from a water district and pay for the rest of their lives..??? But in the past the area has been very unprogressive in regards to their infrastructure, right Ted??????????

Maybe the difference between Orleans and Pitcairn is the Senator that represents them not the Assembly person!

No no no, 7:37, you are not going to be allowed to spew your BS without a response. Our Maid In Service to New Yawk City had little to do with this. The issue had existed for a long time. Where was Duh Maid then? You're a perfect partisan Democrat. You get it in the butt and thank government when they pull out.

3:58, Quit making sense and quit pointing out the idiocy of the Addi supporter. Sure, Addie had noting to do with it and it was her party and her party's Governor that finally stepped up to right what they wronged. But that is still an argument for voting party line donkey. Unless you think a republican could have gotten his done? Or unless you point out that it wouldn't have been addressed if Addie didn't win by the skin of her teeth agaisnt a candidate with more moles on his face than Hoffman and Doheny combined. Bottom line is that every voters needs to vote exactly as they did int he last election, to insure Addie wins but only by a handful of votes, so that her bosses know they lose the seat if they don't cough up big bucks of free stuff.

So after ignoring the issue for months, the govner "has directed the Environmental Facilities Corporation and the Department of Health to enact a SWIFT action plan to assist people and businesses in the town."? You can't make this stuff up...

Wait until 2016 when a local water district lead and copper sampling is done. Changes have been made without proper monitoring. Could have results taking a district out of compliance.
