Maybe privatization is NOT always the best answer to a problem like the county home?

I admit that I haven't got enough facts to form a coherent opinion on this issue but the constant attempts to privatize the county home seem rather desperate on the one hand and pathetic on the other. Private homes for the aged are apparently doing well, turning profits that allow expansion. Why can't the county home do the same?

Maybe we need to fix the home and its management rather than getting rid of it?

how many more years is this nonsense going to go on. Sadly, it will take a republican majority to get this done. Please vote against hoyer, ahlstrom, whitney and the other obstructionists if you live in their district. This single issue is important enough to get out the vote. Though more than likely much smarter than Barmore, it is essential that you vote against Lori Cornell especially.

The county home is and continues to be a major drain on tax payers in Chautauqua County. If your legislature cant make this simple decision how can you trust them with other county decisions. We must vote out those that have voted against the sale of the county home as they are obviously not listening to their constituents.

It appears that Whitney and Cornell will not honor their committment to sell to a qualified buyer, as their votes in January reflected.

The County Home is an asset to the entire county not just the North County. Too bad the colloquial behavior continues in our county, Never wonder why our economy is so poor, jobs unavailable, property value so low; here is a prime example: north south; focusing on one issue a County Executive "THINKS" is necessary. He wants to sell the north county airport, sell the water supply assets of north county communities. What is this FREAKS problem and focus with Northern Chautauqua County.

Put the question on the sale on the ballot. Let the Taxpayers (the ones who are paying the bills) decide.

Mr. Rogers makes the most sense. Keeping this issue on the front burner everyday keeps other even more important issues off the table. I want to know what we are going to do to increase our welfare to work participation rate. There are many other important issues to discuss such as economic development and job creation. Let's talk about these things. Who benefits from keeping these issues off the table? Not the taxpayers.
