"FactHammer says regarding local issues: "Norwich. Heroin. Meth. The end." Really? It's been said many times, All Politics are Local. Work for issues you believe in, where you live. When the people lead, the leaders will follow. "

"WFN, this is a typical blind democrat response. You want the US to be flooded with killer terrorists and illegal aliens that are criminals. You disgust me. Trump has more honor in his little finger than the crook H. Clinton has in her whole body. Keeping undesirable immigrants out of the US is not racist. It is common sense."

"FH, more lies from you again about Trump. You must be a free trader democrat that has cost US citizens 10s of millions of good jobs going overseas to other countries. The result is depressed wages here, no good jobs and a huge trade imbalance. You know nothing about economics. Trump wants fair trade but not Clinton. "
B12

"Great Britain just voted to get out of the EU. The people there don't want anymore Muslim refugees in their country. Looks like they heard Trump and agreed with him. A lot of people in the US agree and don't want more terrorist killers brought into the US. They are against Clintons open borders and unlimited immigration. "

"Clinton signs NAFTA bill and Americans lose millions of jobs. The Clintons are free traders just like most republicans. They don't care about the average American worker. Free trade has cost the US 10s of millions of jobs over the years. Trump is against free trade. He wants fair trade to bring jobs back to the US."

"We will have to wait and see if Chenango County Board of Supervisors have a public hearing on the second deputy position that they want.
