What part of "They lectured us on being so late making our request that the logistics were impossible" does not Ms. Brothers understand? So, it doesn't look very good and instead of admitting the County screwed up bigtime and take it on the chin, Ms. Brothers feels the need to grind our state senators into the dirt. We taxpayers will not blame the senators, St. Lawrence County should have acted on this sooner if they knew it would be crucial in the 2012 budget. Did they think they may get some favoritism from Sen. Ritchie? Aren't both Griffo and Ritchie both Republicans? Silly girl you are Ms. Brothers. Seriously, with only one week left in the session it would be a lot of paperwork to draft, quick lobbying to gain support and most likely would have got shot down with the Governors stance on tax increases. It's obvious this was a desperate measure by County officials to help ease the pain of the 2012 budget. It's too bad they did not act on this sooner. Either way, with or without the 1% tax increase, it will be a tough year for all county residents. Ms. Brothers should try and save face and issue a public apology to Sens Ritchie and Griffo and take the blame herself and thank the Senators for meeting with them during their hectic schedules.
