Candidates debate over ballpark and Indian Point re-licensing
Candidates for both Ramapo supervisor and Stony Point supervisor gathered today at the Town Community Center in the RHO building for a debate sponsored by the Jewish Community Center to discuss both a $38 million ballpark and Indian Point.
Christopher St. Lawrence is running against Marino Fontana and Preserve Ramapo head, Robert Rhodes, for Ramapo supervisor.
William Sherwood is running against Geoffrey Finn, who did not show up for the debate, for Stony Point supervisor.
The political discussions turned mostly to the ballpark that has created over 400 construction jobs and even more jobs when there is a game. However, Rhodes argues, "It's a $70 million project, we will lose $4 million or $5 million a year."
William Sherwood questioned Indian Point, which is up for re-licensing.
In order for re-licensing, however, there will need to be modifications such as cooling towers on the Hudson River which would "destroy" the view, claimed Sherwood.
