Maurice Hinchey Explains Sewer Improvement Earmark
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.
