The $9K per day the county executive loves to repeat is a LIE. The CGR report proved that when you look at the county home books, as they have, the home has a small surplus annually over the last 5 years. If you draw down IGT funds by contributing $500K annually you get a return to the community of $1.5 million. That IGT contribution would cost each household between $6.50 to $17.00 per year to maintain control of a valuable public asset. CGR shows how by cost reductions and revenue enhancements, the home can be independent. It is now being undermined by the county executive. Heritage Home received a $5 million government(HEAL Health Care Efficiency and Affordability Law) grant. Don't let Big Government sell out and the corporate agenda steal one more of the last assets we can still control.

Lori Cornell should be weeping for the taxpayers of Chautauqua County that she just helped screw over. Thanks to her, Keith Ahlstrom, William Coughlin, Thomas DeJoe, Robert Duff, Shaun Heenan, Timothy Hoyer, Bob Scudder and Robert Whitney, the already over burdened taxpayers of Chautauqua Co. will now be forking out $9,000 a day to support the Co. Home. These Legislators do not represent what is best for the taxpayers of this county and should be voted out of office. I personally will take great pleasure in helping vote that sniveling Lori Cornell out of office.

How many other County in NYS have County homes ? Do those County homes lose money on a daily basis.

The 9K a day loss should come only out of the districts that voted against selling the home. Let them feel the pain their elected officials put on county tax payers. CSEA should pay the loss! This is how big public unions are strangling the private property owners. We need to stop this!

And no, TRC is NOT an industry either. It is a business that caters to specific things, like most other businesses. Would you consider Wal Mart an industry?

There are other organizations that help people with disabilities too there Seadog and do far better job than seeing potential dollar signs in their consumers.

Perhaps we need to look up the history of that company. There must be better offers if they have a lousy record of business. I was for the selling, but maybe this will turn out to be a good thing.

Ms. Cornell, Mr. Whitney, and Mr. Hoyer continually show, that the people in their districts, in The City of Jamestown,are not represented by them. They have their own agenda and have told the taxpayers that they will vote whatever way they want to, and the voters in their districts have no say in the matter. If it was up to Mr. Hoyer every business should remain a non for profit and not have to pay taxes. Mr. Hoyer are you aware that the "non for profit" Resource Center" has made more money than any other N for P in WNY but yet they own all this valuable property in Chautauqua County and PAY NO TAXES, but the OTHER PROPERTY OWNERS AND TAXxpayers do. MR. HOYER WON'T AGREE TO SELL THE HOME TO A FOR PROFIT AND HE SAYS IT MUST BE SOLD TO A N FOR P!!!!! HE IS REALLY WAY OUT THERE!!! WHO DOES HE REPRESENT? HE REPRESENTS HIMSELF!!

No, the right decision wasn't made unfortunately. Now, the home should either stand on its own income -- just like businesses in the real world that don't have taxpayer money to dip into - have to. Cut expenses, lay off - do what it takes.

There is some good news and some even better news" Ms. Lori's career as a legislator is over (barring an unseen "mindless hoard of Dem. "lever pullers" in her district. Even better, her desire to become the next County Clerk is for all practical purposes is toast. This is retarded and I state that as a socialist and a liberal. If I am for privatizing the home then who is left"" wtf?

Mrs. Cornell we all have a sad story to tell about losing loved ones - also with the new healthcare law moving towards managed care instead of using our taspayer dollars to subsidize the loses at the county home it should have been provatized. We should spend $1000.00 A YEAR on each of the hundreads of people waiting for help to stay in their home - which allows them to pay taxes spend money and contribute to the tax base. The sale would have saved the county home for decades to come - now I am not so sure what the future will be for the residents - have had numerous relatives in 4 different homes in our area but private pay and medicaid and never had a problem with the admission process of their care. As far as the employees - join the real world no one guarantees my job!

Gbigland, the funny thing is that they will keep their jobs and their salaries. They will lose nothing for 10 years providing they pass a background check. I think that is pretty good. The problem., CSEA will lose $160,000 in annual dues. Tell me who they are worried about.

Ever notice how these things carry out till after the elections, cause they know that the average voter has short term memory and will not remember when it come time to get re-elected? I had a guy call Tuesday night asking me to call my rep, Nazzaro, and ask him to vote no. When I told the guy that I was for selling thew home, he started to "cry" since he may loose his job. I am sorry for him, but I have been in that position before, yet I survived, and luckly almost always for the better. My reply to ANY govenmnet employee is, Number one, you work for me tha taxpayer, and Two, "to bad, so sad", welcome to the real world, like the rest of the working class. SELL THE HOME!

WHAT DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND. LOOSING 8K+ A DAY. THE HOME IS A GREAT PLACE, BUT IF IT IS LOOSING MONEY IT'S TIME TO SELL. THE LOSES ARE ONLY GOING TO GET WORSE WITH THE NEW HEALTH CARE SYSTEM COMING. THE PEOPLE WHO VOTED TO KEEP IT OPEN SHOULD PROVIDE A DETAILED LIST WHY. PLEASE PUBLISH IT IN THE NEWS PAPER FOR THE TAX PAYERS TO REVIEW.

Cornell, Hoyer and the rest of the no votes cost the county over 8K a day. How are they able to live with themselves? The voters must do every thing in their power to get rid of these knuckleheads !!!!!!!!

It a horrible position they have put the taxpayers in
