TOWN OFFERS OPPOSING SIDES OF GAME ON REFERENDUM QUESTION FREE AIR TIME
Release Date: October 11, 2012

TOWN OFFERS OPPOSING SIDES FREE AIR TIME ON LOCAL PUBLIC ACCESS TV TO EXPLAIN WHY THEY SUPPORT OR OPPOSE NOVEMBER REFERENDUM BALLOT QUESTION---SHOULD TOWN LEASE OLD FRANK'S NURSERY TO A SPORTS FACILITY FOR 15 YEARS? (ballot question will be on the back side of the ballot)
 
BOTH SIDES CAN PROVIDE TOWN WITH 10 MINUTE TAPE WHICH WILL AIR NON STOP ON GREENBURGH LOCAL ACCESS TV CABLEVISION CHANNEL 76 AND VERIZON CHANNEL 35 FRIDAY NIGHT NOVEMBER 2ND TO TUESDAY NOVEMBER 6
 
The Greenburgh Town Board has scheduled a referendum for November 6 (election day) on whether the town should be able to lease the Old Frank's nursery to Game on, a sports facility, for 15 years. To help residents cast an informed vote we will provide both sides (Game On and opponents of the referendum) the opportunity to tape a 10 minute video explaining the reasons why they support or oppose the lease. The two ten minute segments will air continuously on Greenburgh local access tv cablevision channel 76 and verizon channel 35 Friday night November 2nd thu election day November 6th.
This is an important referendum for the town and we want residents to cast an informed vote. We think both sides should have the opportunity to highlight the reasons they support or oppose the proposal . The tape can be submitted to the town or produced at the Greenburgh public access TV studio.
The town has had a policy of providing competing candidates for town office with the opportunity to air similar info-mercials on public access TV the weekend before town elections for a number of years.
I will reach out to supporters and critics of the referendum and advise them of this policy.
Paul Feiner
