More Referendum Prep

In his My View about the proposed Hudson City School District capital project, which appeared in the print version of the Register-Star on Saturday and here on The Gossips of Rivertown on Sunday, Peter Meyer made reference to questions he had posed by email to HCSD Superintendent Maria Suttmeier, Board of Education president Maria McLaughlin, and BOE member Sage Carter and the answers he had received from them. He invited people to contact him if they were interested in seeing those questions and answers. On request, Meyer sent Gossips the Q&A. That document can be read by clicking here.

The capital project is one of two referendum questions that will be on the ballot tomorrow. The other is the sale of the building that was formerly the Claverack School. The polling place for Hudson residents is John L. Edwards Primary School, 360 State Street. The polls are open from noon until 9 p.m.

  1. Any drawbacks to the plan, which are small in proportion to the benefits, will eventually grow disproportionately burdensome if we vote to make the perfect the enemy of the good.

    On the face of it, you wouldn't guess that this plan is actually an extremely prudent compromise. We can be forgiven for thinking so, because it's so rare for planners to be as far-sighted as this.
