  •  Hey, I live near you, winter house (none)
    and ski up at the mountain.  Is it true that our town is very progressive with most of the people actively Democrats?  

    If so, I think I'm moving from here to there permanently.

    •  Not quite. (4.00)
      Our town is reasonably progressive, but mostly republican. As odd as that is, it works (this is New York, after all). For what it's worth, in the past 15 years, the all republican town board has appointed me to the planning board, the office of Zoning Enforcement Officer, recycling coordinator, and chair of a couple of volunteer committees. And I'm a long-haired, big bearded, "Dump Bush" bumper-stickered, stand on the corner in the village protesting the war kind of guy. ;^)

      But we are facing some major projects that will possibly remake our town over the next few years. Including several major townhouse developments, a real, physical connection to the village of North Creek with the ski mountain, expansion of the tourist trains, and the possibility of needing to put a sewage treatemnt system in. Of course, this all depends on our community being immune to the inevitable real estate "market corrections".
