At a meeting on Tuesday night, board members in the Town of Geddes voted 5-2 to repeal the New York Safe Act.
The town’s decision is more symbolic than purposeful. “It’s just to put pressure at the top to say, ‘Look it, we’re not in favor of what’s going on here,’” said Manny Falcone, Town Supervisor. “Gives us that right to be heard, so we can move forward in the right way.”
Falcone felt voting to repeal the act was the best decision for the town. “In my mind, I know it’s the right thing to do,” explained Falcone. “I’ve had a lot of constituents call in favor of it.”
