Treasurer returns; debate appears unlikely

(Continued)

While Republicans applaud Crowell for serving the nation, Casale said, county residents “deserve to have a treasurer who is committed to working full-time.”

County Democratic Chairman Richard Abbate said Keator should agree to a public debate with Crowell so voters can determine where he stands on taxes, county finances and the deficit-ridden Otsego Manor nursing home, now slated to be sold to a private operator.

“I don’t know why he’s not debating,” Abbate said of Keator. “It only hurts him and it hurts the residents of Otsego County.”
