To The Editor:
Before merging with the Center for Sight I managed a small business in Ogdensburg for 25 years that was called J. Opticians. I know all too well that most businesses and institutions, small to large, like Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center, already struggle with the north country economy as it is now. Closing of the St. Lawrence Psychiatric Center may be the catalyst that pushes many businesses and institutions over the brink. New York state government and Gov. Cuomo need to hear our voices load and clear. Keep the St. Lawrence Psychiatric Center from the politically motivated chopping block.
