2003 Letter to the Editor

By:  Diane Benjamin

I heard this from TWO sources when I started posting old articles from when the Coliseum vote was taken.

Evidently Mayor Markowitz wanted the arena built, at least in part, because her son loved hockey and she wanted him to move back to town.

My sources heard her say after the vote:  “This is for you Scott . . ”

See this Letter to the Editor from December 15, 2003 – a copy is available at the library:

Anybody not see the same selfish interests still running both Towns?

    1. Did you read this morning’s issue of the Pantagraph? Special interest group wants City/Town to pay for soccer complex. No one is beating a dead horse. No one is beating a horse at all. If history isn’t studied, one is doomed to repeat the same mistakes.


    2. Those that don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Wonder if the Pantagraph will reprint these with a “then and now” style segment. Wishful thinking, at best.
