Last Saturday, at his reelection campaign kickoff, Mayor William Hallenback announced that the senior center at the Armory, a.k.a. the Galvan Community Learning Center, would open in forty-five days. Now Daniel Kent, executive director of the Galvan Foundation, says there will be no senior center if HCDPA (Hudson Community Development and Planning Agency) doesn't cough up the $100,000 it committed to the senior center back in 2012 when the expectation was that a new facility would be built with CDBG funds. Sheena Salvino, executive director of HCDPA, says giving $100,000 to Galvan would bankrupt the agency. John Mason has the whole story in today's Register-Star: "Agency board says no money for Galvan."
