  1. Wow!! I am astounded that Columbia County Supervisors are not listening to those who put them in office. Ignoring your local constituents and simply doing nothing is as bad for your careers as doing something like Cuomo and voting something thru overnight with no waiting period that 80% of the state does not want. Do the right thing. Listen to YOUR voters.

    No Stand? COWARDS! What do you have the courage to stand up for, if not your constituents or the U.S. Constitution? You pathetic losers should not be re-elected.

    You are elected officials and as such should abide by the wants and needs of the people. > remember, “by the people, for the people”. Do not pass off your responsibility by telling them to “contact your state representative”. If your spine is that weak >GET OUT OF OFFICE!
