Thank goodness the following aren't around to blow up this deal: Whitney, Cornell, Hoyer, Ahlstom. These people should NEVER EVER be voted back into any political office. They have cost this county a huge amount of money

Frankly I'm surprised the offer wasnt a whole lot less like 12-14M.

Sell the Home!

The pay of the home employees may actual increase because the CSEA won't be sucking dues out of them anymore.

Harold get all the facts. CSEA has made concessions but those facts get swept under the rug by the republicans.

I thought we, the county, had two (2) options. Sell the county home and keep it operating or not sell the county home and eventually because of cost overruns be forced to shut it down. Now legislator Ahlstrom has a third option. Not sell and keep it open. This must be the smoke and mirrors option.

Expect the legislative chambers to be full of CSEA members crying doom and gloom. The sad thing is that CSEA has had more than 2 years to present cost saving measures to help the home get close to break even, but instead chose to fight for the status quo hoping this day would never come.

I expected the bid to be much less. If the county legislature does not approve the sale it will be a very sad, sad day.

If a referendum was offered, I truly believe the majority of taxpayers would support the sale and our elected representatives should vote in that manner. For the proceeds, 1/2 or more should be utilized to pay down higher interest debt thereby leading to lower interests costs in upcoming years(more savings to pay down additional debt) and put the rest away in a rainy day fund. I wouldn't utilize one cent of it to simply balance the budget in upcoming years. We did that with the millions and millions of Tobacco dollars and where did that get us? Just kicking the can down the road,.
