When asked about the effect on locals, the mayor’s answer was that any village residents can come to the village office and pay for a pass to park in the months that the village will be charging for parking. If the mayor was interested in working with and for the residents and business of Cooperstown and the people in the town of Otsego that shop in the village, he should have said that any resident of the village or the town of Otsego can get a parking pass. This short-sighted move will not be good for the businesses or residents of Cooperstown.

And finally, as the newer residents to our community continue to swing their sledgehammer, another victim is the pride and tradition of Cooperstown Redskins athletics. The board members fueling this change have little or no roots in CCS tradition and have even less understanding of what Redskins means to those of us who do.
