Our guest this week are Bruno Schickel, the Republican and Independence Party candidate for supervisor of the Town of Dryden, and Deb Shigley, who is a candidate for the town council with the same party affiliation. Jim Drew, the other candidate on the slate was not able to make it.
The Republican candidates assert that the Democratically controlled town government is over-spending on a number of fronts, depleting the towns “savings account” and that it is pushing for a zoning law that will be oppressive to the residents and hinder development. The Republicans also oppose the new zoning law that bans heavy industry in the town, effectively barring hydraulic fracturing for natural gas extraction.
The Democratic candidates are due to appear on our November 6 broadcast.
