Louis Liedy, Democratic candidate for Borough President discusses a new strategy

The Committee to Save Mount Manresa was at Borough Hall this morning to present their petition, signed by over 3,000 people, to Borough President Molinaro. A couple of politcal figures were there, too. Louis Liedy, who is running on the Democratic ticket to replace BP Molinaro, spoke to the petitioners, giving his moral support. He stated that it is a bit late in the process, and that at this point, the most viable option is to press for landmark designation for Mount Manresa. He said that the borough’s fund of money to buy up private land that is valuable as a community asset has been depleted by the purchase of several properties in the past few years.  Also on hand was Debbie Rose, city coucilwoman from the North Shore, and John Mancuso, who will be running in the September 10th primary in hopes of getting the Democratic nomination for City Council from the mid-island district.
