WDT: Andy To The Rescue.....No Flint Here

      Governor Cuomo doesn't want any Flints on his watch and Phil Reed won't have his made for the moment issue for an Assembly run.  The Times reports Albany will be funding the deal for municipal water in the Town of Orleans where well are contaminated by salt from a DOT barn.
      Prove positive the political process works to get things done. I am impressed.

He already has his Flint in Hoosick Falls NY. State claimed water was safe for years. Only after private analysis was anything done.

Before everyone starts blowing their horn and taking credit lets look and think this a bit. Nothing has been done do date due to the elections upcoming and the Republican locals dragging their heels hoping to make this a big issue against Addie Russell.. In fact Addie can take the major bow as she was the driving force in this effort.

What about Blankenbushes effort or has their been any on his part.. Same problem with out the potential for politics and it would seem no one cares of these people.. Ritchie and Blank have done virtually nothing except provide a meeting place for the people who are really working on this problem.. What about Blankenbush are we going to give him a pass like Ritchie.

I had to take a moment this afternoon and puke a couple of times when David Sweat was sentenced.. The district attorney of Clinton Co smiled and got his picture on TV and four NYS Corrections officers you know the extension of your local police stood posing for the cameras. Thats what was acomplished today. More waste of taxpayers money to satisfy Cuomo and the politicans.

You have to love the new improved way of spending money in government. Gone are our founding fathers anachronistic ideas of three branches and limited government. Today all we need is is an elected dictator and let them do the spending for us all.

Such is the case here with waterlines to nowhere. And so it will go until the last person shuts off the lights as they are leaving for a southern state.

But this does make voters ask he question: Would they gain anything by electing a person to the minority party in the assembly? And is it worth it if the man you are electing agrees with Addie on 9 out of 10 issues?

This will have as much benefit Addie's reelection as Darrel's "win" in saving the Ogdensburg prison six months before he lost his election to Patty Ritchie.

None of this would have happened if not for the efforts of Steve Conaway at TI Winery. The local pandering do nothing until we have to politicians are a disgrace to heir local constituents. Not only has the north county lost the best and brightest of our workforce, but we are also scraping he bottom of the manure pile for elected officials.
