As Election Day draws near, we decided that we really needed to check out what’s happening with the Democratic candidates in Sullivan County. So, like all good Americans, we booted up our computers.
Here is what we found. Cora Edwards has somehow convinced Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther that she single-handedly brought grant funding to Sullivan County. What we all know is that Ms. Edwards used to work for Sullivan Renaissance and worked with a team of Renaissance staff and volunteers to bring in funding. Everyone knows that it is not nice to take credit for other people’s work.
Also, it seems that she has convinced both Assemblywoman Gunther and Congressman Maurice Hinchey that she supports economic development. I guess she might advocate for economic development as long as it doesn’t develop in her back yard. If you really want to know her record on economic development, jobs creation and tax revenue, ask any of us, her Swan Lake neighbors, about the high-end home development she worked to block rather than help look for alternatives that would work for both the eagles and the developer.
So since we have a choice, we will be voting for Jodi Goodman for legislator in District 6.
