“There is a difference between advocating for something,” Kosmer said, “and trying to beat a dead horse.”
The Manor Committee will hold a series of “informational meetings” with the public to explain its reasoning. The first will be March 16 in Worcester. That will be followed by meetings in Cooperstown on March 23 and in Oneonta on March 30. All of the 90-minute sessions will begin at 1:30 p.m. at venues to be selected. Other meetings are to be held in April.
As painful as the outcome may be, there is at least now a measure of clarity with the judge’s decision and the Kosmer plan no longer muddying the waters. The facility’s future may well be a big problem, but at least it is no longer a dilemma.
