Councilmen’s statements spark questions

To the editor:

Did I read your article about the Warrensburg Town Board candidates correctly?

Did Dean Ackley just realize he had health insurance coverage paid by the town? Did Austin Markey just realize that he could get his health insurance through his employer — a profit making company — instead of from the not-for-profit town?

And did Mr. Markey really just assist a smoking store to open in town? Isn't smoking outlawed almost all over and does it not cause a lot of illness like cancer and emphysema? Just how does the Smoke N Save cigarette retailer help the town?

What about the grocery stores that are trying to get in town? Sounds like a better commercial project to me than a cigarette store.

Please let me know if I am wrong about these things. I hope I am.

Betsy Allen, Warrensburg
