Anything to win an election
Some people will do anything to win an election. I am particularly referring to a letter to the editor published in The River Reporter by Bruce Ferguson, who is running for Supervisor in the Town of Callicoon.
Bruce Ferguson is now claiming that he "will not ban gas drilling" or do anything that could result in the Town of Callicoon being sued for millions of dollars by local property owners. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Having been seated across the table from Bruce Ferguson at many meetings attempting to find common ground between local property owners who want gas drilling and representatives of the environmental movement, I can personally testify that Bruce Ferguson is an extremely vocal environmentalist who will in fact do or say anything to ban gas drilling.
In my opinion, Bruce Ferguson's election to the position of supervisor would be an absolute disaster for the Town of Callicoon.
Also, as a member of the Board of Directors of the Sullivan County Farm Bureau let me emphasize that no one running on the Rural Heritage Party line has the support of the Sullivan County Farm Bureau.
Don't be fooled by Bruce Ferguson and his friends on election day.
