Pierrepont supports psych center

PREV

To The Editor:

The town of Pierrepont would like to express its support for the continued operation of the St. Lawrence Psychiatric Center in Ogdensburg. The psychiatric center is the only such facility in the area, and it is very much needed for the residents of this region. It provides high quality care for those who are in need of its services. It also provides employment for approximately 500 people who support the local economy. With the closing of many businesses in the area in the past few years, we do not want to see the closing of still another facility that provides jobs. We urge our elected officials to do all that they can do to stop the St. Lawrence Psychiatric Center from closing.

Thomas Latimer

Supervisor

Town of Pierrepont
