The Town of Kent Story©

Town Supervisor Ann Marie Baisley with Host Tai

NOBODY KNEW EXACTLY WHAT THE STATE GOVERNMENT WAS UP TO UNTIL WORD ACCIDENTLY LEAKED OUT. NEW YORK STATE D.E.C. WAS BRINGING IN A MASSIVE, DANGEROUS LOGGING PROJECT ON MT. NIMHAM. OVER 415 ACRES WOULD BE GONE FOREVER. HOMES AROUND THE MOUNTAIN AND A CRUCIAL RESERVOIR THAT PROVIDES DRINKING WATER FOR MILLIONS OF PUTNAM COUNTY AND NYC RESIDENTS WOULD BE IN DANGER. IN SPITE OF A UNANIMOUS TOWNBOARD RESOLUTION, THE COMPLETE SUPPORT OF THE COMMUNITY AND NY STATE LEGISLATORS TO STOP THE NYSDEC FROM LOGGING, THE STATE AGENCY SAYS "IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT ANYBODY WANTS. WE’RE THE BOSS AND WE’LL DO WHAT WE WANT TO DO." CAN KENT SUCCESSFULLY STAND UP TO NEW YOUK STATE GOLIATH AND WIN?
