Make No Mistake _ if Joe Booan’s opponent becomes Mayor of Cooperstown we will have Pay & Display machines on Main Street this summer. Even though paid parking machines haven’t been put in yet, that does not mean the threat has gone away. Quite the contrary. Joe’s opponent stated in a recent public meeting that he feels we can have paid parking downtown as early as August. This issue has been intentionally held under the radar by Joe’s opponent and his supporters because they want the people to forget about it in the voting booth.
