In Your Opinion: Don't give up on Manor/Board had mind already made up/

Don’t give up on the Manor

Otsego County residents: Have you ever toured your county nursing home? If so, it’s not your typical home, is it? If not, maybe you should! It’s a beauty.

Do you really want to give up this gem (or “your room”) before the alternative measures are explored? Do you want the fate of the Manor left to another private company to repeat the Countryside fiasco? Get the facts. Check it out and let your county rep know how you feel before it’s too late! Knowledge is power!

Board had mind already made up

I attended the Otsego County Board meeting and had my one-minute say (down from three) about the vote on the pipeline issue. As the meeting progressed, I saw the expressions on the board members’ faces.

I knew that they already made up their minds in this matter.

What a shame!

It seems that the “good old boy” network is still very much alive here.

Yes, it was disappointing. It shows the caliber of people we are dealing with. I thought the board would at least table the resolution but it did not.

By all means the Oneonta crowd must be replaced at election time.

I hope the anti-drill group in Oneonta will think about this, as well as Sustainable Otsego.
