More About Monday

The Valley Alliance has published additional comments about Monday night's special meeting of the Common Council: "Public Silenced at Key Waterfront Meeting."

  1. Good to see that the Valley Alliance is keeping up the pressure. According to the SEQRA rules, there is no time to waste.

    Anyone applying such great efforts needs your help, but the South Bay Task Force specifically needs Hudsonians who are willing to contact their alderman with a simple question (described in detail in Gossips' "The Fate of the Waterfront").

    Motivating the more progressive people of Hudson to contact their own representatives has been the single most difficult challenge I've faced over the last year and a half of my South Bay work. So much more could have been done, but that's water under our sagging bridge.

    If you haven't been interested until now, you can still take just a few minutes to help the ecology by putting that single question to your alderman.

    It will all really be over soon, at least for the non-suing public's part. But we still need information - a simple Yes or No! - that will be of little use to us in about one week. We need the aldermen to look into the question by Friday, or that avenue will be lost.

    There is no one group that can get this information by themselves. We have given up trying (and trying and trying).

    I am finally begging people: please, please, please contact me. We need you to make a telephone call, and that is all. But we need a lot of you to do it, and I realize that may be too much to ask.
