Clearing up errors about pump station

first_imgThe Oct. 20, article [“New Schenectady pump station plan unveiled”] about the revised design and location of the new pump station in Riverside Park included a couple of statements that need clarification.First, the new design features rectangular windows, not arched ones as stated in the article. The state Historic Preservation Office worked with the consultants to design a new building that will look distinct from the existing station with its arched windows.Second, the original proposed location was not at a higher elevation. It would have taken up a large portion of the west side of the park, all of which is at the same elevation. The new design will take a much smaller portion of the park and leave the west side intact.Suzanne UngerSchenectadyThe writer is the recording secretary for the Stockade Association.More from The Daily Gazette:Anderson starts, but Dodgers finish off NLCS winSchenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%Motorcyclist injured in Thursday afternoon Schenectady crashSchenectady police reform sessions pivot to onlineSchenectady NAACP calls for school layoff freeze, reinstatement of positions Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionClearing up errors about pump stationlast_img read more

Klobuchar surge in New Hampshire could reshuffle Democratic White House race

first_img“We feel the surge. For me, it’s been a long time coming,” Klobuchar said in Keene.Beyond New Hampshire, she faces significant challenges in a party uncertain about what kind of candidate it wants to face Republican President Donald Trump in November – a moderate who can appeal to the middle or a progressive who excites the party’s base.In a Reuters/Ipsos national poll released on Monday, Klobuchar garnered only 3% support – well behind Sanders at 20%, Biden at 17%, Bloomberg at 15% and several others.Klobuchar said her message about her appeal to moderates, independents and disaffected Republicans was beginning to sink in. At each campaign stop, she promised to win back Midwestern and rural voters, implying the party’s progressives like Sanders and Warren could not.Growing CrowdsKlobuchar pulled in her biggest New Hampshire crowd of 1,100 on Sunday in Nashua. Her campaign said she had raised more than $3 million online since the debate.In the two new state polls on Monday, she moved ahead of Biden, the former US vice president, and Warren, a senator from neighboring Massachusetts who was once considered a front-runner in New Hampshire.A Boston Globe poll, conducted with Suffolk University and WBZ-TV, showed Klobuchar with 14% support, just 5 percentage points behind Buttigieg at 19%. Sanders led with 27%.Ira Adler, 58, a FedEx courier who lives in Nashua, said he was leaning toward Buttigieg before the debate but was now leaning toward Klobuchar.”She has done really well on the debate stage. She is strong and tough,” Adler said. “I think she could stand up to Trump.”Klobuchar rarely mentions her Democratic rivals on the campaign trail, sticking to a folksy stump speech filled with wisecracks, biography and pledges to lower pharmaceutical costs, improve infrastructure and increase funding for treatment of drug addiction and mental health.At a lunch in Nashua, however, Klobuchar reminded the crowd she was the only one to raise her hand in Friday night’s debate when moderators asked if the candidates were concerned about a democratic socialist – Sanders – leading the ticket.Klobuchar cited her objection to the proposals by Sanders and Warren to provide free public college tuition. She prefers to focus on promoting two-year and apprenticeship education programs “instead of using taxpayer money to send wealthy kids to college.””We’re not going to have a shortage of sports marketing degrees,” Klobuchar said. “We’re going to have a shortage of plumbers.”Liz Racioppi, 66, a small-business owner in Nashua, said the significant number of undecided voters in New Hampshire – some polls put it at more than one-third – gave Klobuchar a chance for a good showing.”She’s been doing a slow rise, but a lot more people are starting to listen to her now,” she said. A Klobuchar surge would reshape the race. With the campaigns of moderate Joe Biden and progressive Elizabeth Warren struggling, it would put her in line to battle rival Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana – and eventually billionaire former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg – for leadership of the party’s centrists in their fight against progressive standard-bearer Bernie Sanders.”Amy is a candidate who can win big, and we are the ones who are going to launch her,” New Hampshire state Senator Jeanne Dietsch told supporters at a get-out-the-vote rally on Monday in Keene.Klobuchar, 59, has drawn bigger crowds and more campaign cash after a strong performance in last week’s New Hampshire debate, where she attacked the 38-year-old Buttigieg for his lack of political experience and his criticism of Washington insiders. She also detailed her history of winning races in conservative or battleground areas, and showed her flair for making her point with humor.But Klobuchar said the roots of the renaissance were in her work in the state. She has visited New Hampshire 23 times since she jumped in the race a year ago and has been endorsed by leading state papers including the Manchester Union Leader and Keene Sentinel. US Democratic presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar’s poll numbers are rising, her crowds are building and she says it is finally her time.Voters in New Hampshire will decide on Tuesday if she is right.Klobuchar, a moderate US senator from Minnesota who has been stuck in the middle of the crowded Democratic presidential pack, rose to third place in New Hampshire in a pair of opinion polls released on Monday, the day before the state’s vital primary.center_img Topics :last_img read more
