A resident writes: "A supporter of the current board says that Trustee Gallelli never retracted any statements that she made about other organizations wanting to take over the Gouveia property and that the Town of Cortlandt was in fact very interested in the site. The supporter said that this retraction never happened and was a lie being made up by "agents of the Republican party". Can you please re-post the facts so I can send it to this person.Thank you for your time."
