Feiner now claims Edgemont doesn’t care about poor people; Village mayors vow to oppose social service funding.

Town Supervisor Paul Feiner declared that “those pushing for [Edgemont’s] incorporation don’t want to continue supporting programs that help the poor.” 

We think that the kind of race-baiting Mr. Feiner is using against Edgemont is deplorable, and frankly, the complete opposite of what’s actually happening. To wit, Edgemont has been advocating for the department, which includes the Theodore D. Young Community Center, while the village mayors are categorically rejecting paying for this social service, no matter how little it would cost, and threatened to litigate.
