Where's The Beef?
Speaking of jobs - how many economic development people do we have employed in the public sector in the Hudson Valley?
Remember how hard some of them fought the local construction workers when they begged for local jobs for local people? We do!
Or what about how hard some of them fought against even bringing up the subject of a liveable wage for local people in the jobs that could be created?
Don't get lulled to sleep because that has not changed.
Everybody talks jobs jobs jobs. All the big shots want their name in the paper for the announcement - but when it comes to actually discussing the kind of jobs or an actual number - forget it !
They can't be more clear with their motto on that-
"Don't ask and don't tell"
Here is a hint to all - That is no longer going to be acceptable.
So for starters, drop the cocktails, fingerfoods and drinks and give us the "solar details".
