In an article on LoHud.com Mayor Leo Wiegman is quoted making some fairly misleading statements about the ability of the Village of Croton to stop the traffic disruptions and potentially dangerous safety conditions caused by the annual Toughman race. According to LoHud (with our emphasis added in bold):
“Mayor Leo Wiegman said the village has no control over the event because the state Department of Transportation has given Toughman permission to close the state highway. And, he said, the village has no control over the park, either; it’s owned by Westchester County.
'My position is because those decisions are out of our hand, we need to work with the race as best we can so that our police department knows what the detours are and how to direct people,' Wiegman said.” READ THE REST HERE http://www.crotonunited.org/blog-n/2015/9/2/real-toughmen-dont-pass-the-buck
