I helped block wind farms in the Town of Lyme as a landowner during the last round of
land grabs during the cape Vincent fiasco. The Town of Lyme Supervisor has made some rather disturbing, and conflicting comments. I asked him who made the laws and he said he had no idea, that he was just a supervisor. A supervisor who can create an ADHOC borad of cronies to create any law he wants. While taxing landowners and saying thing that make him appealing to renters , the landowners pay for most of the services. He says he supports veterans, but veterans own land as well. I think he's upset because he couldn't get this crucial piece of property and I have no doubts he needs to be investigated for conflict of interest. As a landowner and a veteran I take offence to this kind of politician.
