I am a friend of Gloversville Mayor Dayton King on Facebook, as are many other citizens of Gloversville. Recently, Mayor King posted that 42 street lights in the city were out and that they would be repaired soon by National Grid. What shocked me about this post were the number of replies that were negative at best and critical at worst. There were a few posts that thanked the mayor and city officials or offered positive suggestions to improve conditions in our fair city. But those positive posts were lost in a sea of negativity. Some were even totally off topic and pointed out other ills such as potholes in the road. Those should have been topics for another day.
