While we’re all doing our utmost to prevent the spread of coronavirus in Croton, we also need to mitigate its economic damage. I’m glad to see that New York state is contributing to our future economic recovery by having the Croton Point Avenue reconstruction project proceed. As the Gazette observed, all health protocols including social distancing will be enforced. Maintaining worker health should be quite feasible on a job like this. And by starting the project now, it will provide many jobs later this year when we are desperate to get the US back to work.
There have been 10 million unemployment claims in the last two weeks – why does Croton United want to add to their number by shutting this project down?
