Town of Tusten

Do you think the projected Esplanade would be of benefit to the town, and why or why not? If not, do you have any other ideas that might fit in with the Local Waterfront Revitalization Plan now being considered by the NY-side towns in the river corridor?

MARGARET HARRISON - Running for Town Supervisor (D/C)

No, I do not think the Esplanade plan is a benefit to the town at this time. The project at the scale that is proposed is simply too large. It will require significant amounts of financial commitment on the part of the building owners, and I don't believe this has been given the consideration necessary to move forward with a project of this nature.   Read more

Debates 2011

For the first time this year, The River Reporter is using its website to stage election season debates. As we are exploring the format, we have decided to start with just one sample race for each side of the river: Tusten, NY and Damascus, PA.

Depending on interest, we may post debates for additional townships. If you are particularly interested in having an online River Reporter debate in your town, email us at copyeditor@riverreporter.com.
