Does Mrs. Duprey think she is entitled to a seat in the Assembly as long as she wants it just because of years of service?

Mrs. Duprey, any eligible citizen has the right to run against you, whether it annoys you or not.

This example of arrogant entitlement on the part of an elected official speaks to the problems in our political world today.

Disabilities, pedestrians

TO THE EDITOR: The North Country Center for Independence wants to hear from people who have experienced incidents involving cars and pedestrians with disabilities.

It could be wheelchair users, people walking with crutches, walkers or guide dogs or people with hearing or visual impairments. We are looking for actual accidents or any kind of “near miss.” Our purpose in asking is to assess whether traffic rules need to be strengthened or clarified or whether there is a need for extra public education on the rights and responsibilities of all pedestrians, including those with disabilities, and drivers using our public sidewalks, crosswalks and streets.

If you have experiences or opinions on this topic, please call NCCI at 563-9058.
