Massena Pride on display this past week


To The Editor:

By now, most in the north country have been made aware of the chain of events with regard to Thursday’s law enforcement activities. As it’s been stated numerous times, the collaborative efforts by all the agencies involved speaks volumes to zero tolerance in our community.

On behalf of the village of Massena, I extend our greatest appreciation to the U.S. Attorney Richard Hartunian and to the entire OCDETF Team.

I would especially like to recognize Chief Tim Currier and the Massena Police Department, who day after day came under pressure as a result of undesirables who have infiltrated our community. As you safeguard our village while adhering to rules that seem at times difficult to perform your job, don’t think your efforts go unnoticed.

To two young ladies who stood in front of the Town Hall Wednesday afternoon, with a sign that read, “Honk if you are produ about the bust,” thank you for your community spirit. Thursday’s major drug bust not only put a huge dent in drug trafficking in our neighborhoods, it united a village.

Massena Pride.
