Adirondack Musing has the best details and links about today’s referendum:

Residents of Raquette Lake want to trade 12 acres of forest for 1 acre of state-owned “forever wild” land where they will build their badly needed village water supply. This proposal has the support of the Adirondack Daily Enterprise as well as the NY Times. I doubt that many residents of the Adirondacks have much problem with voting yes as well. Even the environmentalist should be happy because NY State will gain an extra 11 acres of park property.

So voters of NY State please vote YES on Tuesday Nov. 6th, to give Raquette Lake residents a clean water supply.

Brian concurs and adds an important piece of commentary on our election process –
