The racist rants against jews that want to move into blooingburg is astounding. Even more dispicable isa guy like Nate Berg who had a great grand father wjo was a great rabbi. How Berg could espounge such hate against fellow jews is unbearable, Rabbi Berg has no rest now i am sure

If the mayor was bribed, the state District Attorney should investigate and charges should be filed if there's evidence of graft. People in Bloomingburg don't fully understand how this incredibly incongruous project could have been allowed and corruption is one valid explanation. Long after the mayor is gone, current residents and taxpayers will be left to pay the bill for what many see as another Kiryas Joel.

What do you mean" as another Kiryas Joel" ? Is that meant as discriminatory ? Isn't that racist? Whats the problem with the people of Kiryas Joel? The last time I checked i belive that the residents of KJ are americans , arent jews citizens of america? Face reality this is pure discrimination against fellow americans who want to live in Bloomingburg NY .

..........Look, another instant play of the "anti-semetic" card. This is the way the subject is changed to make the criminal look like the victim.

I agree CTM! Let's keep playing the race card instead of dealing with the truth.....they lied,cheated and they got caught! Our town and schools will not be run down by Any one group!! We like our art and sports programs in our schools we do not need our funding sucked dry and our small town Is great,we like it small and when hunting season comes around ask them how happy they will be.....we all hunt and have guns and atv's I'm sure they won't like it ! That will end up being another issue!
