Results of Our Caucus

We are running a full slate of excellent candidates for office in the village of Dryden. MIKE MURPHY is running for mayor after five years as trustee (and another term back in the '80s!) Longtime residents DEBBIE FISHER and JASON DICKINSON are excellent candidates for trustees. She is a member of the Historical Society, has served on the board of the Community Cafe since its founding, and was part of the steering group for the new playground at Montgomery Park. He teaches at George Junior, and with three boys in Dryden Schools, he's coached his fill with the sports and rec teams for over a dozen years. All three are running on a platform of sensible development, good communication, and fiscal responsibility.

Erratum

Joe Osmeloski informs us that his wife's is the only Osmeloski name on the lawsuit filed against Sun8 and the Town of Dryden. On the card pictured below, which went to west side Dems and Blanks, we mistakenly suggested that a candidate was suing the town, but it appears that only the candidate's wife is doing so, and not on the candidate's behalf. The Dryden Democrats regret the error.

4. From communication with County Attorney Jonathan Wood:

Back in 2015, they were looking at the whole way we would use the site in the future. Real issue was an evaluation of that land for county uses.

Such as: • Maintaining the leachfield area for runoff (required by DEC). They marked off where that would be. • Also considering having a spot for food waste – new state law will require institutions (e.g., supermarkets, restaurants) to recycle food scraps. Will dramatically increase the volume of food scraps, so we’ll need that space for much larger volume of compost. • Then they considered what leftover space could be used for solar? not that much. Some wetlands there too.

Later, Solar City looked at the site and determined that it wouldn’t work. The biggest issue is that it really doesn’t have good electric connections. Overall it’s “…not a good solar site at all.” They said it’s not worth thinking about.
