    in Politics

    Please tune in to Stand Up Hudson Valley Episode 20 tonight at 7 PM.  Hosts John Allegro and Emily Convers will discuss the latest on "Salt-gate," the manufactured controversy that has roiled the relationship between the Town Board and the Monroe Highway Superintendant over the past months.  It's so bad that the April 20 Town Board meeting degenerated into a shouting match between the Supervisor and the Hwy. Superintendant that lasted about an hour.


    All this prior to announcing a "rules of civility" for meeting attendees.  


    John and Emily will also detail the plan by the KJPE to drive down property values through annexation.  Also, how this annexation - if passed - will have grave consequences on the MW School District and our childrens' education.
