Speakout: Dec. 3, 2013


To the SIP committee that banned the shelf elf, I guess it only takes one or two members to spoil it for so many children.


Rather than abruptly changing health insurance for City School employees to Plan B, why not research the options with local pharmacists and doctors and see what is truly covered, rather than listening to insurance reps who are promoting their product. Why not explore other options, raising the premium $10 to $20 per pay period or renegotiating the buyout for those who get a hefty payment for not taking the insurance. There are other options that can save money rather than abruptly changing it to Plan B.


So let me get this straight, you would have me take more of my money, give it to teachers for their benefits rather than have them pay for their own benefits? Benefits that my family does not enjoy? This isn’t about saving educational programs; it’s about entitlements.


If our teen is using his car to cart you around, please have the decency to pay for gas. And if this continues every day, we will take the car away for good. You are taking advantage and so are your parents. It is not our responsibility to transport you.


To the person who took the Tim Collins campaign sign on Route 9 in Chazy, could you please return it or let me know what happened to it?


So let me get this straight, my sexual orientation is a choice and is not worth rights while your obesity (while eating fast food daily) is due to genetics and deserves special privileges?


Why is it that everyone talks down about rich people in politics. They get their money through their good business knowledge. Those types of people are exactly what we need in the North Country. Someone needs to step up and fix the business known as the City of Plattsburgh.
