Now consider this ... an accident due to heavy drinking or a drug overdose could have happened and someone could have been seriously injured on village property as a result. Does anyone believe a lawsuit against the village would not have ensued. Does our mayor have any common sense in such matters? And, Cooperstown’s reputation as a good place would have been marred for years.
Many people find the mayor’s comments about the Grateful Dead/Furthur concert being the only one Cooperstown could get this summer a bit strange. In closing, I ask the mayor: Is it not infinitely better to have no concert at all, than one that is reckless and lawless with high risk for the the village?
The answer is pretty simple for most people.
