Croton Democratic candidates—Charlie Kane and Ann Gallelli—and Republican candidates—Joe Gonzales and Jim Steinberg—met yesterday, March 8, 2006 with the Journal News editorial board to discuss their positions various short and long term issues facing the village. Separatley, Croton resident and Journal News reporter Robert Marchant penned a story titled “Parking, sewage key issues in Croton election” that appears online for March 9, 2006.
However, his news story may leave residents confused as Mr. Marchant refers to “sewage” being a key issue in the upcoming village election. Curiously, at no point in the story was the word “sewage” ever mentioned. The principle issue in this year’s campaign is the wisdom of applying eminent domain (see: “Eminent Domain Could Become Most Catastrophic Move in Village History”) to the former Metro Enviro C&D waste transfer site located at 1A Croton Point Avenue (satellite).
