Quotes

“I was still quite a bit taken aback by [Brendan Lyons’] resignation just because his words and actions didn't seem like those of a man who was ready to give up the fight and walk away.”


“School districts have always been weird when it comes to transparency for the most part… I always believed in tackling issues head on. That's my style of transparency.”


“They are going to be developing a master plan and a capital projects plan, and looking for community input about what gets you excited, about what the future could hold for Croton Falls.” 


“We're in the middle of apple picking season, which always brings a lot of revenue, but it also brings a lot of problems into North Salem with traffic and people looking for places to eat.” 


“Carol has been chasing this story down through every twist and turn and I feel like every time we would talk about it, there would be a different development.”


“The majority of the varsity teams in Somers have been having a very good year.”


“If [bus drivers] found another gig while you couldn't be driving for the school district, maybe you're just sticking with that.”


“One of the things that might be problematic is they might have to combine routes and they’ll have to put more kids on the school buses.”
