Albany County Could Take an Official Stance on Iraq War

Posted: Feb 11, 2008 01:09 AM

The Albany County legislature is expected to consider an anti-Iraq War resolution at a meeting on Monday.

The resolution, co-sponsored by Legislators Phil Steck and Doug Bullock, calls for Albany County to officially oppose the Iraq War.

Legistlator Steck says he hopes the resolution would send a message to Washington that local lawmakers have a clear and strong opposition to the Bush Administration’s policies in Iraq.

The meeting is set for six o’clock Monday night at the Albany County Courthouse.

Are you kidding me?! We’ve already left a message with the Clerk of the Legislature for County Legislator Brian Scavo, District 7, whose phone number is NOT listed in the directory of legislators. The main phone number is 518-447-7168.

It is NOT the business of the Albany County Legislature to make foreign policy. It is the business of the Albany County Legislature to manage county-level policy, programs and budgets, regarding such items as elections, transportation, social services, the county nursing home, roads and services, as indicated by the list of legislative committees.
