Weeks after the county Sheriffs’ PBA blasted Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s SAFE ACT legislation, Alan Grattidge, chairman of the county’s Board of Supervisors, released a statement saying it should be repealed. Grattidge and other supervisors from the county plan to go to Albany on Thursday to speak to state leaders about their concerns. It’s a pretty risky strategy opposing a governor who is notoriously sensitive about criticism and presently has the power to name the locations of where casinos would go if they are legalized by voters. Also, the county continues to operate without a county clerk, and is waiting on the governor to make an appointment.
