Cut ‘em some slack
So one of the first decisions by our new county legislature—to place the county’s tourism promotion contract out for bid—could have been handled differently and in a more open manner. But the honeymoon ended before it began.
Whaddya say we cut ‘em some slack? I wasn’t in the room, but I’m heartened by two things I read and one I didn’t. Reporting on Sullivan County Visitors Association (SCVA) President Roberta Byron Lockwood’s confidence in her organization—holding no resentment at all over a prospect of competition—was encouraging, and it’s refreshing to see legislative members self-reflect on how they might have handled things better. What I haven’t read is anyone saying the SCVA has done a bad job.
