The following letter was published in this week’s issue of the Gazette.
To the editor:
Anyone who has tried to pill a cat can sympathize with Mr. Masur: objectively speaking, the cat is stupid and you know what is best for the cat, but the cat still resents having something forced down its throat.
Mr. Masur is distressed (The Gazette, week of Dec. 5/11) because after the mayor and village attorney had patiently told us what is being forced down our throats, Croton residents “seemed often to ignore the information we had just been given.” Mr. Masur notes that the village attorney “clearly and explicitly explained” the process but—much like the cat—the residents of Croton resisted. They “continued to raise planning issues that were not and could not be addressed” in the current process. Mr. Masur went on to scoff at residents relying on “rumors” “mostly from the internet” “that equip us with very different versions of reality.”
OK, we get it Mr. Masur. We are stupid and don’t appreciate that you know what is best for us. READ THE REST HERE.
