The City of Troy, New York, "Where Henry Hudson Turned Around."

Thursday, March 17, 2005


The Rensselaer County District Attorney's Office finally nailed Public Enemy #1, used auto parts dealer Jack Cox. Cox faces 2 and 1/3 to 8 years in prison. Whew! Troy's long nightmare is over.

It's ironic that men sucking at the public teat seem to take such pleasure in closing down those in the private sector. Deputy Dan (Crawley) had to open his mouth and say:

"Hopefully there is not a fire and nothing happens until we get the court decision and we can get the place cleaned up."

Anybody ever drive by Crawley's former house in Brunswick? Crawley should have been fined for that eye sore. How is this guy going to clean up Troy when he couldn't keep his own property clean? It looked like the Clampett's had set up camp.

And what about Naz's Body Shop? What's that, the Pearl of Route 7? That's been an eye sore forever.

Yes, Cox should play by the rules. He's a big boy. But the Harry Administration should play by the rules also. Why hasn't the media focused on the raises received by David Mitchell last year. Mitchell received at least one and maybe three raises not approved of by the City Council (or should we say, the Mayor's Advisory Board?)

Come on Troy Record and Times Union. There's a story there just waiting to be discovered.
