So then the Observer feels that local government officials should not be trained. That makes sense.

joew - You're a genius! You've just solved the overall school cost problem. New York State can hire one teacher for every grade and subject and kids can stay home and learn via webinars. No need for buildings, tens of thousands of teachers and support staff. No busses, no cafeteria. You are really on to something.

Chuck392- Perhaps you need to check your facts. NYCOM is nothing more than a dues taking support group supported by the mayors of the state and in many cases supporting mayors in side stepping state laws applying to local govts and playing word games with tems to find loopholes when the term doesn't even apply to a situation according to all state officials (mothballing). Then to have someone admit 'oh we don't have a village charter so we are subject to NYS local and village laws' after the fact is ripe. Since the mayors pay the freight for this group( union dues if you will) you really don't think the group will tell a mayor he is wrong do you?? At last count the mayor and at least 3 of the trustees, the clerk and the treasurer are at the conference.

MatthiasJ - Sorry, I don't agree with your observations. I see NYCOM as a big asset to local governments and their residents. Their training and management publications are excellent based on any that I've had the chance to see. Have you read any of them?
