Just the fact that she supports sharing of resources gets my vote!

I believe all the candidates in both cities want to share services which is a great idea. Ms. Martin however had to add that she does not want to take on the financial burden that Gloversville has. #1 what burden?..I beleive Mayor King said we had a 3 million dollar fund balance and #2 I don't believe anyone asked Johnstown to consolidate with us at this point. I will bet however in a couple of years when things start sprouting up around the new Walmart that Johnstown will welcome us into their "Lifeboat"!

Not all of Johnstown's candidates support consolidation. One has come out and said it will cost jobs. That's the whole idea of working for a smaller government. It will save dollars for the taxed citizens.

Annarondac, Yes consolidation may cost jobs but are you telling us that reducing government jobs is the best way to reduce the size of government. You need to understand the it is the responsibility of the mayor and council to provide certain services to the citizens, now when you cut the jobs are you going to be able to provide these services?
