    Dan Wilt, Art Lussi, Ken Lynch, Matt Tebo, Brad Austin and Joe Zalewski are without the education needed to perform their appointments to the APA…

    … the Park is without sophisticated leadership.

  2. Al West says

    Far more research is needed before applying this product to Lake George, Lake Luzerne, and other Adirondack lakes. I agree with Todd Eastman regarding the qualifications of APA members.
    The Adirondack Park Agency should be disbanded, with numerous bad decisions on policy. Also the Adirondack Council should butt out.
    I don’t trust DEC, and I surely would not drink the water from Lake George.
    Far too much politics at play here and not enough science.
