CHENANGO COUNTY – New York State’s most powerful political muscle may not flex against a company trying to run a high power line through Chenango County.
Four of the state’s most influential policy makers have failed to come down definitively on what may be the county’s most important and formative issue in decades. Of the four, two are rumored to be considering a run at the White House, one leads polls for taking residence in the governor’s mansion and the last is the state’s senior U.S. Senator. In the battle against New York Regional Interconnect, Hillary R. Clinton, George Pataki, Eliot Spitzer and Charles Schumer have failed to weigh-in.
