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.
