Can it be true - Obama is taking action?

A lot of rhetoric is all we've heard from Obama since the BP disaster.  As president, Bush Jr. liked to say, "I'm the decider..." Well, it's about time Obama take the authority he has been given by the electorate and take action against the worst oil spill in U.S. history. Obama needs to do what's right and place restrictions on further off-shore oil exploration, fund a concerted "green energy" initiative. He needs to use his presidential authority to do what the Republican minority has refused to do thus far, i.e. bring our troops home, close Guantanamo, stop funding a top-heavy Pentagon and bring back "real" regulation to the financial industry. Speaking big without an equally big stick is just a sign of impotence.

Saugerties: Lead or follow?

Lead or follow?

The oil disaster in the Gulf that continues to destroy the environment and the economy of Gulf states is the perfect opportunity to enact real energy reform. It's time to fund clean energy research and pass anti-pollution regulation. If America doesn't take the lead the Europeans and Chinese will!

Congressman Hinchey Touts Saugerties Village Sewer Improvements

June 1, 2010 - Under cloudy skies Saugerties politicians gathered at the Saugerties Village Beach to hold a press conference to herald the $800,000.00 grant which was included in an earmark. Saugerties Village will have improvements to its aging infrastructure , thanks to Congressman Hinchey.

Some of the folks who attended included Saugerties Town Supervisor Greg Helsmoortel, Town Trustee Fred Costello, Mayor Bill Murphy, Alex Wade and both Saugerties Village Water and Sewer Supervisors.

It seems that the Congressman had called together the press to dispel the "Those Lies" he claims were printed that the Daily Freeman that connected the Partition Street Project and the earmark. The Congressman is part owner of the project.

When asked what his position was on the many concerns Villagers had regarding noise, traffic, lighting and safety concerns with the new project, he stated that he was not familiar with the specifics. "I'm not [aware] of the [Partition Street] project details so I can't give you any answers... if citizens have any problems contact me and I'll [try] to address them."

He directed his attention to me [David Radovanovic] and assured me that he would take care of any problems that arise regarding the Partition Street Project.

Congressman Hinchey to Hold Press Conference at Saugerties Village Beach

Congressman Hinchey is having a press conference today (June 1, 2010) at 2:00 PM at the Saugerties Village Beach. He will be speaking on concerns of recent articles in the Daily Freeman about his earmarks to Saugerties Village for sewer improvements. Some have implied that these are self-serving earmarks since the improvements will benefit the new Partition Street Project which Congressman Hinchey is part owner.
