PR: Plattsburgh Get's The Thunder, We Get the Bird

     Congratulations to the City of Plattsburgh. Today, Governor Cuomo announced the city is winner of the $10M downtown grant for the North Country Region. 
      The reason ? For starters, when it comes to economic development the eastern boys are playing chess while out west they are playing checkers.
      In Watertown, City Hall spent $60K on politically connected (they say) rainmakers who were supposed to come through on things like this.
     The same people pitched me a couple years back and I knew the game and blew 'em off.....They got what they wanted but Watertown got squat.

More mismanagement is you ask me. If you have to hire a professional to try to put out a vision for you obviously you lack one yourself.. More wasted tax dollars on consultants. Good for Plattsburgh but does not surprise me that Watertown did not get it. We have a real leadership deficit in this city and nothing is going to change until we get some new blood in here. Start with city management and then the dead wood on council.

Just shows you Owens still has clout while elise didnt figure at all in this. Usually a Co gresswoman should have a little influence with State officals.... Congradulations Bill

I'm not defending Eloise, 6:53, but Plattsburgh is also in her district - as is Ogdensburg. Why would she favour Watertown?

Wow, what a relief. We hate free money and new things in Watertown. We like to party like it's 1899.

Congratulations to pAddie Russle for voting for this budget,which gave the power to a corrupt democrat governor, to give a democrat city, $10 million of our tax dollars, and skip our local city.

Sure 653...

Giving Owens credit for this is the same as giving elise credit for 'keeping Ft. Drum safe' from deep BRAC cuts.

Complete and utter B.S.

The COW has changed their dynamics is all wrong, maybe if there was a more leadership in the COW head shed??? Maybe Fishers Landing will apply next time.

Pathetic - blame Bill Owens for our loss? Try the nearest mirror.
