It appears that no matter what the results are in this poll, Emphasisthe Supervisors who want to sell will do so no matter what the people say because they and/or their predecessors haven't done their job in the past and don't want to do it now, They don't want to tackle the earlier recommendations made from the HNH Study to make them happen, they don't want to look at Administration of HNH to see how that can be impacted to make it work, they want a quick fix. "There are none so blind as those will not see" is a quote I recently heard applied to the Essex County Board of Supervisors, and I love its application to them. Some Supervisors even think it is a joking matter. Read the Minutes from Essex Co. Board of Supervisors Ways and Means Committee Meeting of Monday, March 26, 2012. So if they look at it as a joking matter, how will they ever take the results of this poll seriously, but I give this Newspaper credit for putting this poll out to the public for consideration since politicians of the past have taken away our right for a county wide vote by the people. Wait, didn't our forefathers create this government as a government for the people, and by the people." How sadly we have veered away from that.
