Legislature Chairman Jimmy Langley (R-Area 7, Peru) agreed that the Saranac Lake office is not as well equipped as the Plattsburgh site.
“It’s not even big enough, and the amount of people going there will more than double.”
State Sen. Betty Little (R-Queensbury) also wrote a letter to Fenster asking that the Plattsburgh office remain open.
A spokesman from the Workers’ Compensation Board declined to comment on plans to close the Plattsburgh office, saying it likely will be part of the ongoing state budget process.
