SOMETHING SMELLS IN GOSHEN!
BUT, NO ONE NOTICES; MOST OF OUR RESIDENTS ARE TIED UP MAKING ENDS MEET IN OUR SHRINKING ECONOMY.
THE BULLIES OF ORANGE COUNTY
Let's all send them some copies of Dick and Jane so they can sharpen their reading and listening skills.
Maybe we can get them to understand some basic concepts like what the First Amendment of our Constitution means,
so they will not send jackbooted thugs after the alternative
press to threaten and intimidate.
Perhaps they will understand that they do not have Carte Blanche
to spend our hard earned money to line the pockets
of their political patrons.
We are in serious trouble in Orange County, a County that feels it can spend $33,000,000 as a gift to Phillip Clark for his extravagant and over priced scheme to destroy a national architectural treasure.
The Orange County Landfill is leaking, yet Shannon Wong will side with the republican leadership to spend $33,000,000 more than necessary on the OCGC.
|Effluent leaking into the Wallkill River upstream of Wallkill Water Supply Wells, the Orange County Park and the Town of Montgomery Park.|
While Ms. Wong is siding with the republican leadership to spend, what appears to now be close to $83,000,000 of our money, the Orange County Landfill is seriously compromised and has been leaking into the Wallkill River, a Federally protected waterway, for over a year, and no one really knows how long this condition has existed.
The County knows about this and they have been "working" with the DEC (confirmed by correspondence from DEC) without making any public disclosure.
How many $ Millions will that remediation cost the County. Of course they haven't said too much about this. Perhaps they don't want taxpayers asking where all the money is coming from, especially while they are trying to give money, our money, away to Phil Clark of Clark Paterson and Lee for their hugely overpriced CPL Plan.
Think about this; the water supply for the Town of Wallkill is DOWNSTREAM from the LEAKY LANDFILL, as is the new riverside recreation facility in Montgomery. Does Mr. Brescia, chairperson of the legislature and Mayor of Montgomery know this?
And, do the people of Orange County who use the County Park facility between the Town of Wallkill and Montgomery know, that the County Executive has been keeping them in the dark about the toxic mix flowing past where they picnic, boat and possibly fish.
Steve and Steve make a great pair!
And, all this is aided and abetted by Shannon Wong. Wake up to the political fallout from these deceptions of omission.
Can the residents of Goshen and the rest of Orange County afford the $$$,$$$,$$$ that the two Steves and Ms. Wong will try to spend?
DISCLAIMER: As an environmental investigator, I have witnessed the discharge of effluent from the Orange County Landfill at a number of locations along the bank of the Wallkill River. Those discharges have been documented and released to a specialist for analysis. Other Orange County residents have also made reports to the DEC.
Complaints are pending with the Army Corps of Engineers, the EPA and the organization Riverkeeper.
