Board never wanted to keep the Manor

--
The Daily Star

---- — Otsego Manor belongs to the people of Otsego County, the people who have paid taxes all their lives, who should be entitled to live at the Manor, should the need arise.

Now the county board is telling us we can’t afford to keep Otsego Manor. People have spoken out, and continue to speak out against the sale of Otsego Manor, but the board is not listening.

Could it be that this has been the plan from the very beginning? They wanted to sell when we had The Meadows but wouldn’t get the amount of money they wanted. So “we” got Otsego Manor.

These people (the board members) hold our very lives in the palms of their hands. Most of us already live hand-to-mouth and now have to wonder if we’re going to have jobs.

Ms. Stuligross: Have you ever had to wonder where your next meal is coming from? Many of us have, and still do.

We take consolation in knowing you will have to answer to the Lord, and you can’t ignore Him. Remember, you reap what you sow.
