Meet the candidates: Patricia Jacob

(Continued)

I will work with other board members toward obtaining the best financial package for the town (water district). We shouldn’t have accepted the city’s offer because the cost was too high.

What is your position on a merger or shared services with the city of Oneonta?

The majority of town residents surveyed did not want a town/city merger and I support this view. A merger would not be to the financial benefit of town residents. Town taxes would go up. We already share a lot of equipment and manpower in public works. I support collaborating on sound economic development, which will benefit all area residents.
