Campana: Comments were misleading

City Council President Clement Campana apparently wasn't satisfied with the response of Corporation Counsel Charlie Sarris to his questions about a lawsuit filed against a city employee last year to remove a reverter clause from the former Verizon Building on Sixth Avenue.

In his reponse to Campana's questions about why the City Council had never been notified of the issue, considering that its members also make up the Troy Urban Renewal Agency - which had control over the reverter which was enacted in 1973, Sarris had said that the city had not disposed of any property and that Sondra Little was named as the defendant in her capacity as Commissioner of Planning and Community Development.

"Your comments are erroneous and extremely misleading to the general public," wrote Campana in a letter Thursday. "The caption of the verified complaint states in plain English that Ms. Little was being sued in her capacity as Executive Director and Secretary of the Troy Urban Renewal Agency."

Supreme Court Judge Michael Lynch ruled on Sept. 18 in the LLC’s favor after receiving no opposition to the motion from the city.

The matter is not believed to have any impact on the city's current lease on the Verizon Building or its plan to use the structure as a temporary City Hall.

The only person that is "erroneous and extremely misleading" is Clem Campana. His lack of leadership is disappointing. He should step don and let John Brown take over. He is our only hope.

Right! Like we want Brown to take over. He already is trying hard by sucking up to turncoat Dworsky and no job Bob Mirch and Pickles, as they sit for their daily bull session at the South Troy Diner. The only good person there is Pickles and hopefully he doesn't get caught up in their bull. It is not to late Mike, get out while the going is good and do your own thing without these self serving azzholes to try and guide you.

Maybe he is, but he is more capable than both Tutunjian and Crawley - combined.

The last comment is very comical
Clem is the classic fence straddling politician.
Roger Minch for council
