Point/Counterpoint

On September 9, the first day of school in Hudson, the Tiffany Martin Hamilton campaign published a report card assessing Mayor William Hallenbeck's performance during his two terms in office. Yesterday, the mayor's response to the opposition's evaluation of his performance appeared in the form of a door hanger.

    
Under the subtitle "A Record of Accomplishment," the mayor, referred to as "Hallenbeck Jr.," boasts about lowering property taxes and takes credit for such things as establishing "trust and accountability in law enforcement," decreasing crime, "working on providing a new Ferry Street bridge after over 100 years," and for twenty-eight new businesses that opened in Hudson in 2014.

  1. There's obviously a typo. The Ferry Street Bridge was closed last October, so I think the literature meant to say that the mayor is working on providing a new bridge "after over 1 year."

  2. I think the sentence was meant to read that he would be working on providing a new Ferry Street Bridge over the next 100 years.

  3. Does he tske credit for all the businesses that closed in 2014?
